River Trent, Sawley
The river itself passes over Sawley Weir and the line of orange buoys prevents boaters from inadvertently heading that way; the arrow points into Sawley Cut which rejoins the main channel below Sawley Locks. In the background is the spire of Sawley Church.
River Trent

The River Trent is the third longest river in England (185 miles). It rises on Biddolph Moor, Staffordshire, then follows a generally north east to northerly path to join the River Ouse at Trent Falls. The Ouse & Trent combined form the Humber Estuary.
It is a very important river, economically having a number of Power Stations and industrial sites along its banks. It is navigable as far as Burton-On-Trent.
