SJ9752 : Weir above Cheddleton Flint Mills

taken 40 years ago, near to Cheddleton, Staffordshire, Great Britain

Weir above Cheddleton Flint Mills
Weir above Cheddleton Flint Mills
On the River Churnet. The weir seems to divert the river around the mills, presumably for times when the flow would otherwise be too much.
I'm not sure what the activity is seen here. It seems to involve sandbags, perhaps to improve the flow?
