'Taken earlier this evening (26/6/04). The gauge was showing 1.72. Normally this level is considered too low with only a small green wave forming. However, because the river has risen so quickly over the last day or two the wave has formed with a fairly boily, retentive shoulder most of the way across. Lots of fun, especially as I was the only person there. Just goes to show how unpredictable the spot is.' Photo from Ollie of trentweirproject.
