Taylors Weir

Difficulty Rating :Stars2 Fun Rating :   Stars3

After a long flat pool that skirts the main road, Taylor’s Weir is easily recognizable by the farm buildings (and numerous cows) on the left hand bank, and a concrete pumphouse. At a medium level and above it is shot straight and slowly, one metre from the left hand hand side – at a full level the water actually runs over this wall so get an idea from this video about where to shoot it! The exit nowadays has changed and there is a clean channel slightly right that offers a clean line out.
At medium or lower, you can use the new steel chute that has been installed one metre to the left of the central weir pillar. Stay right of the steel chute pointing 15 degrees right and then picking your way through the rocky rapid below.
