Strines Weir And Sluice Gate 

Strines Weir was apparenty built to feed the Print Works reservoirs via the mill race. The weir fell into disrepair and was eventually destroyed in a flood in the 1960' s, all that remains is the sluice gate.

 

The photos below shows the weir around 1900 before the sluice gate was added.

Strines Weir and Sluice Gate

The sluice gate at Strines is still standing although a change in the course of the river has left it high and dry.
