Southern Weir. 

I think some of the large rocks used in the construction of our southern weir are on the move.

    • In the early 1070s the marsh section of the River Stour was dredged, and its historic weir removed, as part of a flood alleviation project. Two new rock weirs were constructed half a mile apart in the marsh section of the River Stour in 2o10.

      The rocks in the southern weir were dislodged by the force of flood waters. Two years ago the Environment Agency used larger rocks to construct a stronger weir.

      The result of weir failure will be drying out of the marsh. The weirs are still working at the moment, but if the rocks are moving downstream now, the problem is likely to get worse.
