Full Description

A weir on the Trent just below the Soar entrance was built in 1797 as part of the improvements to the Trent Navigation in the 1790s, associated with the construction of the Cranfleet Canal and lock. This enabled barges to move more easily across the Trent by remaining above the weir. (1)
