Totnes weir pool update


The work at Totnes Weir is nearing completion . All landscaping around the weir is due to be finished by the end of March .

However work is not yet complete, and members should be aware that access across the weir is also not finished and crossing the weir should not be attempted.

A steel walkway at the back of the building is nearing completion within the next couple of weeks . Once completed the platform/walkway will give access for Association members (only) to cross the weir via a combination locked gate , photographs showing the walkway will be placed on the website once it is available for use . We will probably use our normal combination but will review this possibility and advise members once installed. The new Larinier fish ladder is working and the fish counter installation nearly complete (also should be working by the end of March)

Improvements at the bottom of the old fish ladder are also taking place .
The next year or two will certainly be a learning curve as we adapt to fishing in the weir with the different flows .
Over the next month or two the committee advise all members to treat the area with caution while the final work is completed at the site, and when fishing the weirpool this coming season.
