Alma Weir, Ostcliffe's Tannery

Date: 1900

The old weir, built around 1800 on the River Skell, stretched right across the river, diverting some of the flow into the Mill Race which ran down Low Mill Road. On the far side of the river stands Ostcliffe's Tannery which was still in operation in the 1880s. It was closed by 1885, following the death of James Ostcliffe. The site was then acquired by the Trees family, builders, who eventually built Skellfield Terrace on the site.
