See J3472 : The frozen River Lagan, Belfast (9). The view downstream, from the towpath near the Governorís Bridge J3371 : The Governor's Bridge, Belfast, with the Stranmillis Embankment on the left. This was close to the end of the frozen stretch. The part of the river used by rowers (out of picture to the right) was reasonably clear and might have been suitable for some (careful) rowing as far as the Kingís Bridge J3471 : The King's Bridge, Belfast. Continue to J3371 : The frozen River Lagan, Belfast (11).
The frozen River Lagan, Belfast 2010 :: J3474

The severe weather conditions, since before Christmas 2009, have caused the River Lagan, in Belfast, to freeze over. This is next to unheard of and is due, not just to the cold weather but (possibly) the reduced salinity of the river (downstream of the Stranmillis weir), as a side effect of the Lagan Weir at the Queen Elizabeth Bridge. In some places, a frost has settled on the frozen surface.
