Full Description

A series of four stone-built weirs lie along the River Bradford in Bradford Dale. Each comprises a stone-revetted dam with a sluice and iron sluice gate, and a stone-lined weir to the north of the dam. The westernmost weir also has a stone-lined channel running alongside the weir downstream of the sluice. They were all built by 1880. They create slow-moving upstream ponds and were probably built for fishing. (1)
