Concrete and steel dam weir built across the River Ashop above its confluence with the River Alport. Built of vertical set reinforced concrete sheets forming a 'corrugated' wall. Across the dam is a metal walkway with a handrail. The river collects water for the Woodlands Valley conduit (see SMR 8297) which leads into the Derwent Reservoir. The watercourse and dam were built in the 1920s to increase the catchment area of the Derwent and Howden reservoirs. (1)
