Unfortunately, the recent heavy rains across the UK, and in the Midlands in particular, have led to very high river flows in the River Dove. These have caused the works on Dove Cliff weir to be suspended temporarily for health and safety reasons. The weir has not yet been removed and no work has been undertaken on the structure to date. All works so far have been to create the temporary works, such as access and site set-up, ready for the weir removal to go ahead.
