Wortley Top Forge - Weir Repairs


Wortley Top Forge 1


Dredging works have been carried out at Wortly Top Forge to remove the build up of silt sludge and vegetation which had reduced the holding capacity by approximately  90%. The small Dam holds the reservoir that  feeds the water wheels and due to the build up of silt sludge, meant that the wheels would only run for limited periods.  The works included repairs to the stone faced weir in the River Don to the timber sluices and  construction of a timber revetment.
