Crafts on the Severn

Brindley and Holt Castle Waterwheel

Category: Severn Crafts
The Navigation Improvement Bill of 1849 mentioned that Brindley had been asked to survey the Severn from Queenhill to Pendock in 1763, but his opinion was never acted upon. Also that Mr. Pickernell, the occupier of Holt Castle, had a waterwheel for supplying water from the Severn to the Castle, but this was frequently out of action due to the back-up of water.
