The top of the generator next to Bealey's weir. Some of the water from the river is diverted down this chute, turning a screw in order to generate electricity.

The River Irwell rises on the Rossendale hills north of Bacup and flows south for 39 miles before joining the River Mersey west of Manchester. It was a very important river in the development of industry, during the Industrial revolution, in Lancashire.
