07 February 2015 - River Wansbeck, Bothal, Northumberland.

This morning we walked to the River Wansbeck at Bothal. The fish ladder at the weir has been removed and what was once a lovely scenic place has been left as an eyesore.

The first three photos below are views of the weir with a gap in the middle where the fish ladder used to be. The next photo is a view of the now dry part of the weir followed by a view from above the weir.
