Flood sluice
Flood sluice
The landward side of a self-acting sluice which will allow flood water to drain from fields instead of remaining impounded by the embankment.
River Trent
The River Trent is the third longest river in England (185 miles). It rises on Biddolph Moor, Staffordshire, then follows a generally north east to northerly path to join the River Ouse at Trent Falls. The Ouse & Trent combined form the Humber Estuary.
It is a very important river, economically having a number of Power Stations and industrial sites along its banks. It is navigable as far as Burton-On-Trent.
