A new fish pass at Godstow

The Environment Agency is replacing the weir on the River Thames, located next to the Trout Inn at Godstow, in Oxfordshire. They say (our bold emphasis):

“We will remove the old weir structure and build a new weir, two metres downstream. This will allow for better debris clearance. For the last year we have been working on the detailed design of the new weir and applying for funding.

The weir will look largely the same, as we will be using the same design of gates. There will be an additional structure to the left (looking upstream) which will allow fish and eels to make their way up river.

The full briefing is here.
