SK4184 : Carr Forge Dam

near to Woodhouse, Sheffield, Great Britain

Carr Forge Dam
Carr Forge Dam
In the Shirebrook Valley below Woodhouse were several waterwheels, possibly dating back to Tudor times, and part of Sheffield's early industrial heritage. This shows Carr Forge Dam with the water levels lower than usual because of the prolonged dry spell. The Shire Brook was in times past the border between the ancient kingdoms of Mercia and Northumbria and more lately between Yorkshire and Derbyshire, hence the name Shire Brook.
