EPIP industrial heritage programme

Wortley Weir Project

In 2011 the Industrial Heritage Programme funded a project by Groundwork Dearne Valley to assess the condition of the water management system at Wortley Top Forge; one of the last working heavy forge's in the world. The work included an underwater survey of the weir and small dams by professional divers. The results of the survey are now available.


Groundwork Dearne Valley are currently working on proposals to develop a conservation project to repair the weir and water management system, with funding from English Heritage (through the East Peak Monument Management Scheme). Part of this work will involve discussions with stakeholders, including the local community. For more information please contact our Industrial Heritage officer.
