A 'fun' fact about the area to entertain you whilst you're there.

Here the Dart has a substantial weir. The leat runs from the top all the way in to Totnes. Only one mill building now survives: the Town Mill dating from the 17th century. This was used as a water mill until 1945. The weir now is home to two Archimedes Screws that serve as hydroelectricity generators, which can generate enough to power 300 homes.
Now the town is home to 'a fine pair'. Things are looking up...
