Hi all

This is the top Weir on the River Wharfe Linton. The building at the end of the weir is the refurbished Hydroelectric Power Station.

The first hydroelectric power station on this site was built in 1909 pioneering in itself as it was used to generate the first electricity for the nearby village of Grassington. The original plant used an existing 2.7m high weir that had already been constructed at the site a century earlier, feeding a local mill. The plant ran until 1948 when the arrival of the National Grid made small scaleŁ power stations economically un-viable. Subsequently the site was abandoned and left to the elements, falling into disrepair losing its roof, windows and part of its masonry.

V2 For reference frontal view of the power station.

It is quite interesting and anyone interested can find more here.

Thank you for the votes and comments on "The Bridge Over The Falls" all greatly appreciated, and thank you for taking the time to look.

Cheers John

I like the diagonal fall of the water, John, and the way you have made it look silky. The power station is nicely placed in your composition.

Just enough movement in the water in V 1 to confirm flow: two fine shots across the weir, John.

Great composition in this magical waterfall. I would prefer the water natural
As it seems to distract from what is a marvellous landscape. Well done John.
