We finish this series of 12 podcasts about Calver Weir, Calver Mill and the River Derwent with a homage to the weir itself. Children past and present talk about playing on and around the weir – Matt Dudgeon, Graham Gill, Jim Mundy and Cara, Isaac and Jamie Woolford. Michael Heath also talks about fishing on the weir and an early restoration in the 1960s.
