SE2046 : Otley weir and Garnett's paper mill

taken 27 years ago, near to Otley, Leeds, Great Britain

Otley weir and Garnett's paper mill
Otley weir and Garnett's paper mill
Taken when the mill was still active in late 1992 (I think). The river is a good bit higher than usual: see John Sparshatt's photo at Link for how it usually looks. When I was a kid, I and my brother and sister used to come and play in the river here, treating the weir like a big waterslide. I imagine social services would be called if you let your kids do such a thing these days!
Garnett's mill is now closed and the area is having hundreds of houses built on it.
