The ancient weir on the River Brue near the Parish Hall was repaired at the end of 2012 by a group of local volunteers after 3 years of fundraising. The weir, which is the largest on the Brue, had suffered severe erosion damage in the latter part of last century and was in danger of collapse. The Internet site was created to get the weir repair message out to a wider, younger audience and, whilst it is now getting out of date, it contains some of the history of the weir that would still be of great interest to many.
