Weir. Constructed c1759-60 by John Kemmett as part of Kemmett
Canal, small branch of River Frome constructed to by-pass Churchend
Mill (and others on River Frome) to carry freight up towards

concrete repairs, over three arches for waterflow, and supported

Frome, the earliest recorded use of goods in containers. Included
