  1. The wier was built by the electric railway , it was a patent built one that was supposed to regulate the river flow and allow water to travel down a lade to a water tubine to generate power for the tramway, some off the bits are still their , the stone building just up from the shore pub held the turbine and a sluice valve controlled the flow. it caused a flood in the 1935 ? flood which again caused serious damage on glen road
