Full Description

The Tithe Map for both Winsford and Exton Parishes depicts a mill leat leaving the River Exe at SS 9232 3377. The river forms the boundary between the two Parishes. [1,2] The 25 inch 1st Edition Ordnance Survey map depicts a weir in this location, with the downstream side labelled "Shetter's Pool". A leat leaves the river on the upstream side of the weir, which may have been constructed to facilitate this. [3] The weir is shown and labelled on 2021 MasterMap data, as is the pool. The leat also appears to be in situ at this time. A salmon leap is also labelled on the northwestern end of the weir, at SS 9231 3378. [4]
