Note: the version of the Annual Report spread across pages on this website is based on the full-length version but does not reproduce it exactly. For example, some graphics are missing because they do not work so well on screen. Cross-references to page numbers have also been taken out and replaced with links.

Some sections also currently have a few less photographs than the full-length version of the report, but some have more, for example of the new silt traps in Barrington and Crimchard.
