taken 7 years ago, near to Watchet, Somerset, Great Britain

Papermill sluice at Kentsford Farm
Papermill sluice at Kentsford Farm
Taken looking across the medieval bridge from the low-lying modern-crossing. This sluice appears to direct water into a leet that is still used by the Wansborough Papermill, which is just downstream. There are some electronic devices on the sluice to regulate the waterflow into the leet.
