Middle Averon: Wires

Mon 11 March 2019

Yet another hazard on the middle section of the Averon... about 1km downstream of the tree hazard below there are two stainless steel wires with electric cables attached strung right across the river on a gd 1/2 section. The electric cables appear to be connected to a wooden box at the side of the river - perhaps some kind of level gauge?

The level today was low (0.75m) - one wire was just under the surface and the other was about 30cm above the water. The wires are just above a right hand bend with a big boulder in the middle of the river and are VERY DIFFICULT TO SEE until you are right on top of them. Could be very dangerous if not spotted in time.
