Removal of the weir at Ennerdale mill, Egremont

Removal of the weir at Ennerdale mill

 to let you know the work on the removal of Ennerdale Mill Weir has started and access to the site is not allowed for health and safety reasons.

The footpath from the allotments along the river is still open but fenced off from the work site (the work site can however still be easily seen from the footpath or the opposite bank).

Site visits can be arranged to the site by the site manager although the correct PPE will need to be warn and a site induction given. If anyone would like further information or to book a site tour (these will be arranged in small groups) please contact myself or Luke Bryant (cc’d).

Kind regards,
