If you do shoot the wier it is best to go as far towards the lock as you can. There is a portage point at the bottom of the wier

this lock is also known as Freemans Lock named after nearby Freemans common(now a trading estate).And is lock number 41 of the Leicester line.Portage is difficult here as the masonry sides are very high!

1 Chome-11 Kamifukubara, Yonago-shi, Tottori-ken 683-0004, Japan

Original River Course to Cossington.
Bridge normally too low to paddle under

Paddle Point

Launch under bridge, Access to Soar/GUC and River Wreake.
There is parking either side of the bridge.

Great spot to get on to the Wreake, but paddle rights seem to be disputed & the new bridge has a nice no-entry sign.
Yep, plus a string of buoys across the entrance. Methinks a rich landowner.
Paddle Point

Normally happy for paddlers to park and launch if buying a drink or meal at pub, but would prefer parking to be for Patrons only on busy days - Bank Holidays, Sunday Lunch etc.

Go to the left of middle down the weir for best flow and water level, just be away of the Metal sheeting at the top, water level needs to be high enough.
