'When Jonathan Ryland was out for a walk in April 2024 he spotted a sizeable length of track at Collins Weir. Contractors Collins built the weir in 1847/48 to keep the main channel over to the Ulverston side so ships could enter the Ulverston Canal. Two hundred metres have been uncovered leaving this masterpiece for us to see.' Its position is on very soft sand, including dangerous quicksand and visting the site is therefore NOT recommended'
