Listing Text

9/57 Weir and cascade at
outlet from the Lake,
with flanking wall and


Weir and cascade with flanking walls and ford. c1720 by John Simpson,
mason, for John Aislabie. Gritstone. Ford of stone setts, weir and
flanking walls of large blocks. Ford approximately 3 metres wide, weir
approximately 3 metres high. Flanking walls have segmental-arched sluice
outlets. The River Skell emerges from the Lake over the ford and drops into
its natural bed to continue on a meandering course through the valley known
as Seven Bridge Walk. The lake is almost entirely man-made and the weir
forms the northern limit to Aislabie's planned garden scheme. Below the
weir the natural features of the landscape predominate. The ford carried a
carriage drive which encircled the lake and continued down the stream
through Mackershaw Wood. It was not then possible to cross the River Skell
on foot at any point between the Rustic Bridge (qv) and Seven Bridges Walk.
