Weir with a pronounced right angle between the inner and outer arms. The wall from the shore consists of a stone bank up to 8m wide and 0.2 m high with a well defined line of stones along the top standing up to 0.4m in height. The outer wall could be traced for 220m. A small structure could be seen, most clearly from APs, on the outer side of and close to the outer end of the wall from the shore. This could be a bass trap. (Hopewell, 2000).
