Weir still waiting for rain !

Its now two months since we had sufficient rain to set Archie spinning - although with ths New Mills One World Festival fast approaching we can probably forecast a downpour (hope not !)

Renewable energy generation as a whole was down 7% for the first 3 months of this year with nearly half of that loss attributable to low river levels across the country in particualr Scotland.

There is a downpour forecast for Friday morning but it needs something more than an hours rain to raise river levels.

The picture below shows Archie's weir now showing through the River Goyt.
