River Wye Cores End
River Wye Cores End M. Forshaw
A number of weirs still exist on the River Wye that impede the free passage of fish along the course of the river to a greater or lesser extent. The ultimate objective is that they all will be removed or modified such that fish have uninhibited movement the length of the water course.
  1. Beech Road Ford. As the ford is no longer in use look to its removal altogether or remove a section of the weir to improve fish passage.

  2. 17, 18 & 19. Wycombe Retail Park. Fish pass needs assessing for its effectiveness and debris collector removed. Remove or modify upstream weir.

  1. Bassetsbury Mill. Possible modification of side weir and channel to improve fish passage.

  2. Pann Mill. Investigate methods to improve fish passage past the mill.
