Hartham Weir (also known colloquially as Two-step Weir) is a small weir on the River Lea next to confluence of the River Beane/Lea, on the edge of Hartham Common, Hertford, England.

Design[edit]

The weir was installed to let the river travel over a main sewer pipe.

Uses[edit]

It is commonly frequented by Herts Canoe Club and local anglers.

2008 rebuild[edit]

The weir was demolished and rebuilt in 2008, due to erosion and wear on the old structure.

Local MP, Martin Prisk and Herts Canoe Club re-opened the weir in a ceremony on Saturday, 25th of October 2008.
