Barnard Castle Weir
Barnard Castle Weir
The present weir was completed in 2014 replacing the previous weir from 1963 which had been a significant barrier to fish migration. The new Larinier fish pass has a series of baffles that slow the flow of the river. This allows Atlantic salmon, brown trout and grayling to move freely up and down the river.
