Tyne and Wear HER(4921): Woolsington Park, cascade - Details
Woolsington Park, cascade
Water Power Production Site
Stone-built waterfall and cascade engineered specifically to add interest to the perimeter woodland. Important part of the development of the lake and its associated water courses in the designed landscape. A weir at the eastern end of the lake discharged to a lined chute to create a waterfall. To the north of this there may have been a sluice which discharged water back into the Ouse Burn.
