Outflow weir, Shackerley Mere
Complete with a few coins thrown for good luck. Shakerley Mere was once a quarry, where sand was excavated to make coloured glass. When production ended in the early 1960s, the quarry filled with water and became a mere. It is now a popular leisure and wildlife site, run by the council.
