Video: Unveiling of historic weir structure

A historic ironwork structure was unveiled at its new home in Todmorden this morning (Tuesday).

After being displaced by the Todmorden flood defence scheme, early 19th century ironwork from the original Todmorden Weir sluice gate has been relocated to Fielden Square to become a gateway feature to the town.
