NY4756 : Cairn Beck fish pass

Cairn Beck fish pass
Cairn Beck fish pass
This was built in 2003, to enable migratory fish such as salmon, lamprey, sea trout and brown trout to access spawning and nursery habitats in the upper reaches of the stream. Water flow is slowed down by metal plates set in the slope. This weir, and another upstream, had stopped the movement of fish for more than 100 years. Cairn Beck is a tributary of the River Eden.
