October 2015

Description

An assessment of the structures which make up Dulverton weir, together with research into its history, has shown that there was a weir on the site since at least as early as the mid- 16th century. There is the potential for the survival of more of the historic weir in an area known as ‘the island’. The work has also highlighted the history of the mill buildings at Dulverton and suggests several areas where further research and survey is needed.
