It has a weir and is a good area for Barbel, but the downside is the amount of chancer's without a licence there get there in the Summer. Grimley and Hallow (grim and shallow) is OK , but it's not prolific, used to be good for big Barbel, not so sure now. My advice would be Severn Stoke on the BAA, plenty to go at and the chance of a whacker. Feeder fish it with smaller pellets on the hook and you might get a few good Roach Bream etc. IF the Barbel show it will probably be at dusk, close in.
