|Data availability||07/12/2007 - 31/01/2010 (in low flows the diver may be above the water surface)|
|Location||Immediately upstream of confluence with Brennand|
|Abstractions||There are several United Utilities abstraction points in the upper catchment|
|Related sites||Upstream sites, WHI_tree and WHI_mid; downstream site, Footholme (EA gauge)|
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 (530kb). (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 stock was excluded from 1999 to 2007, after which low level restocking started.
Trees have been planted in the riparian zones throughout the catchment and on the eastern hillslopes of Middle Knoll. Low stocking levels are being maintained in the headwaters (habitat regeneration). Stock is excluded from the eastern hill slopes of Middle Knoll and from the riparian zones where trees have been planted. There may be logging of old forested patches (pine) near Good Greave, but this is still under negotiation.

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.)
