See J3371 : The frozen River Lagan, Belfast (10). The Governorís Bridge marked the limit of the frozen Lagan. Downstream (left) was partly frozen but the section (right) to the Stranmillis Weir J3470 : The Stranmillis Weir, Belfast (5) was almost clear. To go back to the start see J3474 : The frozen River Lagan, Belfast (1).
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.
