I’ve caught a barbel there before, it had a bit more water on than now though. It’s very shallow under the bridge but does deepen up around this swim.Rumoured to be the barbel feeding ground at night there, haven’t seen anything during the day but you can see it’s gravelly from the bridge.
I was speaking to a bloke last night, further down stream and he told me he’d had one over 11lb down that way. I’d imagine they swim the entire length at times, you have to be a bit lucky to find them.
