Gary Mascall...'Some pictures of the rebuilt Gasworks weir on the Teme.We ran this Saturday 3rd Dec 2005, at a high level, and found that this new feature is not very pleasant. Apparently the kayak shoot is left of the new fish pass, but we did not fancy trying our luck, as the hole looked pretty unpleasant, and if you got kicked left into the weir stopper, then you would probably get worked over, and getting a line to you would not be easy. I think the people responsible for designing and building this need a rethink, otherwise it may become the scene of an accident, particularly as relatively inexperienced paddlers get taken down this section.
