This station is currently suspended. Data is not currently being collected from this station. The figures shown here are for the most recent data collection. Live data will be resumed when the station is active again. We have no idea when that is likely to be, so please don't ask!

Warning! The current value seems implausibly high. It is quite possible that this is an error. You should not, therefore rely on the accuracy of this data.

Important! The levels for this location are measured relative to sea level, not relative to the riverbed. The levels shown here do not, therefore, necessarily represent the actual depth of the water.

This is a tidal level, measured from mean sea level rather than from the river bed. It can, therefore, be negative, and does not give any indication of water depth. Tidal levels are not necessarily updated frequently, and may not reflect tidal movements throughout the day.

Download long term data as csv

Note: CSV data will include any outlying values that have been ignored by our graphing system as probably erroneous (eg, because they are ridiculously high compared to the values either side of them). It is your responsibility to filter these out if necessary.

Important! If you are planning to retrieve the csv data automatically, you must read and understand the limitations on the data and its availability.
