Into the river we go - (24/06)

At this stage of the project it was time to open up the tail race out into the main river by breaking through the existing mill wall that had retained the river for the past 150 years. This in itself brings challenges as two diggers had to be lowered into the River Goyt (suitably above water to ensure environment agency guidelines are maintained) and then a process of removing years of debris and ensuring the correct depth for the exit.
