Monument record MDR9997 - Leashaw Weir, Cromford Canal, Lea Shaw

Type and Period (1)

  • (Georgian to Victorian - 1794 AD to 1900 AD)

Protected Status/Designation

  • World Heritage Site Buffer Zone

Full Description

A run-off culvert consisting of a modern brick chamber with what appear to be timber stop planks slotted into channels formed in the sides of the opening to the front of the chamber. There is steel mesh over the top of the open chamber. It is not known whether this is an old outlet with a brick chamber constructed in the position of an earlier stone structure. It is unusual to find this feature on the offside, but perhaps related to the now lost boat docks which were in this location. (1)
