Description

Shrewsbury Weir is a playspot that comes into condition only when the Severn is very high. At lower levels it can form a dangerous stopper and should be avoided - note that the level suggested here is only an indicator that it should be running. If it looks nasty, it probably is - don't get on! The wave flushes when the river rises further.
