Low water on the Blyth

Heading for the beach at Walberswick we stopped for a quick picture of the Blyth at low tide, looking east after scrambling over the dyke from the A12

Hoxne Weir with 0.37m on the gauge

A mild day in mid December for a paddle from Syleham up to the weir at Hoxne for the waterslide

Waterslide at Hoxne with 0.34m on the gauge from Petro Dobromylskyj on Vimeo.

Below Hoxne Weir there is 1/4 of a mile of little gravel riffles to the mill house. After this is is deeper and slower but soon you meet a killer of a low tree. A solid tree trunk right across the whole river, you could get under it at very low levels or over it at very high levels, but I've had to portage it at mid levels.


Happy happy, thank you to who ever removed it. Environment Agency?????
