Site Event/Activity record EEM14545 - 2015: HBR - Beasley Weir, Battleton
South West Archaeology
South West Archaeology Ltd. was instructed to undertake historic building recording at the former hydro-electric plant at Beasley Weir, Dulverton, Exmoor National Park, West Somerset, by Catherine Dru (the Client) prior to the partial demolition of the existing structures and the creation of a new 78kW hydro-electric facility. The first building on the site was constructed by the Dulverton Electric Lighting Company in c.1912-14 and was decommissioned in c.1950; the site was then modified and used as a fish-breeding station until the 1980s. The site at present comprises a corrugated iron shed standing on a mass-concrete plinth adjacent to the weir and fish-breeding tanks. The standing remains are relatively complex, with five main phases of alteration and adaptation.
