Alveston Weir

Accessible to all craft kept on the connected inland waterways

Silver Propeller Challenge



Visit Alveston Weir on the Avon Navigation by boat or canoe.

The Silver Propeller Location is the navigable limit two miles above Stratford at Alveston Weir. There is plenty of room to turn below the weir but the river close to this point is quite shallow and reedy depending on the time of year. A photo of your boat on this part of the river will be a good proof of your visit.

Complete our challenge by visiting 20 locations from our list, you will receive our exclusive plaque and goody bag.
