Mitton Weir is at a low level - even at this level, the boat in the picture only just got through.

Sale Wheel is probably the most technical rapid on this section, grade 2/3 depending on level, grid ref 676359. Photo is at a very high level - the water was up to the seats on top of the bank at the put in. Paddler Geoff Pelham.

The 'dangerous weir' looking particularly dangerous in high water conditions (bankfull).

The weir from below and the footbridge in the background... very substantial looking for a footbridge.

The rapid below Dinckley Footbridge (GR 686366), bank-full conditions.
