Averham Weir
Averham Weir
Looking north-east across the Trent. The weir on the opposite side, guarded by a floating barrage, takes part of the flow through a channel northwards to Kelham to rejoin the Newark branch at Muskham. The waterway to Averham was cut by the Sutton family around 1558 to increase flow to their mills. Unfortunately, this cut took too much water away from Newark and the town challenged the Suttons with a law suit. As a result they were forced to construct the weir to ensure the Newarkers had sufficient water to work their mills and float their boats.
