Data DownloadCross section survey data, stage/discharge data (including manual measurements of stage) and time series of levels (not corrected for atmospheric pressure) may be downloaded here (1.04mb). (For details on using the data click here.)
Land Use / Management ChangesOver 10km of grips were blocked in the headwaters prior to the installation of the instrumentation (2004/05) and woodland planting occurred in the upper catchment during early 2008. Stock was excluded from 1999 to 2007, after which low level restocking starting. Recent land use / management changes provided below:

Channel DescriptionThe channel cross-section at the instrument location is provided below. Datum is taken as the top of the diver access tube (red bar). Width is measured from the left-hand side bank when looking downstream, with locations to left of the diver tube taken as negative and those to the right positive.
Details from an MSc student project are available here. (Note, the information above takes precedence over the student report.)
