Marlcliff Weir

The Avon Navigation Trust have been carrying out repair work to the Marlcliff Weir.

This has involved:

  • Placing stone behind the full width of the weir.
  • Removal of trees and vegetation from the weir island.
  • Removal of trees along the opposite bank from the weir upstream too opposite our car park.
  • Diverting the main flow over the weir along the far bank away from our bank and the lock to minimise erosion.

The work carried out on the weir has resulted in an increase in the level of the river upstream, measured at 6 inches at Bidford Measuring Station.
