Brightside Weir
Brightside Weir
The fourth (or second) of the weirs on the Five Weirs Walk. There has been a weir here since at least 1328 when it powered a corn mill. Beyond the weir are the modern factory of Gripple Ltd and part of Sheffield Forgemasters' River Don Works.
Five Weirs Walk
The Five Weirs Walk is a 7.5km footpath and cycleway which follows the River Don from Lady's Bridge in Sheffield city centre to Meadowhall Retail & Leisure Centre on the city's eastern boundary. This stretch of river incorporates five weirs which were built as part of Sheffield's industrial evolution, and which give the walk its name.
