HRS 2883 Radcliffe Bealey's weir overflow 1970s

Bealey's weir was built across the River Irwell at Warth Fold in 1811 to provide a water supply to Bealey's bleachworks one and half miles away. There is an unusual overflow, a circular shaft that feeds the excess water in times of flood back into the River Irwell.
