Six Gates Weir – Houghton
ADVICE (Wednesday 10 April 2019 until further notice)
Please be aware the energy company EDF have temporarily installed a high voltage cable across the back water river bed at Houghton which is downstream of six gate weir. Whilst not specifically on the navigation channel, canoes and small craft may use this channel so we advise caution if proceeding.
The cable is marked with bank side tones and no weed
cutting will be possible in this area for the next six months before EDF can dig this into the river bed.
