River Mersey at Northenden Weir and Salmon Ladder
River Mersey at Northenden Weir and Salmon Ladder
Looking across the River Mersey from the Didsbury bank.
The Environment Agency constructed a fish pass here in 2003 to enable salmon and other fish to negotiate this previously impassable weir. This has resulted in salmon spawning in the upper reaches of the River Goyt (a tributary of the Mersey) on a regular basis. The fish pass runs under the gratings in front of the railings.(see SJ8390 : Salmon Ladder at Northenden). Also see (SJ8390 : Running High - River Mersey) for a view from the opposite bank after heavy rainfall.
