Fish Pass at Derwenthaugh
Built to allow salmon, eels, etc.to swim past a weir. My husband and I often walk at Derwent Country Park. The whole area beside the weir was Derwenthaugh Coke Works - very industrial until the early 1980's. My dad used to work there. He would be amazed at how the area has changed. The area is now home to a wide variety of wildlife including deer, otters and numberous red kites. In fact if we don't see a red kite on one of our walks we are very disappointed.
