    As a frequent river user, I saw the wheel numerous times last year and sadly it was a bit of blip in the usually wonderful view. I can also see it from where I live and I walked past it most days last year. I am surprised to see that the wheel is returning as it never seemed busy even in holiday time. I don’t think it should be positioned where it was last year. It was overbearing where it stood and I never went on it myself mainly due to the very clunky sound it emitted from its mechanism!
