It's a relief to see the river level as low as this at this time of year. (Such a contrast to Boxing Day last year! See here.) The resident heron on the weir beside Roberts Park was barely getting his feet wet, a couple of days before Christmas. Repairs are still ongoing at the riverside flats and offices in the New Mill. You can see the amount of wall that has had to be rebuilt where the river breached it on Boxing Day 2015.
