Buckland Monachorum: weir on the river Walkham
The weir served the Lady Bertha Mine at SX471689, a mile or more away. The leat on the left, now a dry ditch, powered water wheels on the mine, used for crushing ores and initially for pumping water. The mine raised nearly 4,400 tons of copper ore and almost 1,700 tons of arsenic in the period 18551882. Note the remains of a fish pass here
