Appraisal

This eighteenth-century weir is an interesting reminder of the industrial heritage of Slane and was an integral part of Slane Mill. Located on the upstream side of Slane bridge, this weir was constructed to divert water into the mill race on the other side of Slane Bridge. Constructed beside the lock on the canal which runs to the south of the River Boyne, it forms part of an interesting group of eighteenth-century industrial related structures.
