Beeston Weir on the River Trent

This is Beeston Weir on the River Trent. It is one of the reasons you have to leave the river to get from from Beeston to West Bridgford and use the Nottingham Canal instead.

It is a thing of beauty, but the Trent is a dangerous river. The memorials to 'Owen' here are for 12-year-old Owen Jenkins. In 2017 he lost his life saving a friend from drowning.
