A friendly green wave in low levels, it builds gradually, eventually turning into a sticky walled in monster when it gets too high. Look before you leap!

Water Levels

Don't rely 100% on the gauge as it is a long way upstream of the weir. N. Muskham weir is closer, but I don't have calibrations for that (anyone?). 2.1m at Colwick = 1.4m at N.Muskham 1.8m at Colwick = 1.23m at N.Muskham 1.2m at Colwick = 0.95m at N.Muskham Does anyone have any more reliable calibrations for this? If Newark is too high, try Farndon or Trent Lock.

Getting There

Takeout W0°49'8" N53°4'30"

Cross the bridge over the river right channel on Mill Lane, and park in the area on the left. To put on the water either seal launch from the bridge over the river left channel, or cross this bridge and put in from the footpath river left. Getting out take out river left below the weir and walk back over the bridge to the parking area.
