Is there anywhere I can get hold of data relating to river levels in the UK?

Some river level as-in depth is available from the Environment agency, but note they say 'This website is primarily aimed at experienced flood hydrologists and the webpages assume some knowledge of flood hydrology and the Flood Estimation Handbook'.

River level as-in flow data can be obtained from the national river flow archive at the NERC Centre for Ecology and Hydrology - unfortunately not all this data is currently available for immediate download.

Many data sets do seem to require care and a level of understanding about the subject area in order to make most sense of the data. For open data initiatives, I wonder if we need to also consider what supporting/training materials are required in order to make sense of the data?
