A weir is a large wall that holds back river water so it can be slowly released downstream. They are designed to regulate water flow and are important part of our water supply network.

However, weirs can be dangerous and unpredictable as you never know when water will be released, or from which part of the weir. We strongly advise that people do not enter weirs. Find out more about the dangers and weir safety.
