The Weir Returns!

The pond in Laindon Road

By Claire Morley

On Tuesday 16th April 2013 residents of Laindon Road were surprised to look out of their windows and see that the old weir had returned outside Weir Cottages.

In a striking similarity to the old pictures of the weir which originally filled part of the road, water flooding  from a mainhole cover linked to the water tower in the grounds of Albion Court filled the road in the same place that the weir occupied recreating a bygone image. 

Essex and Suffolk Water responsible for the water tower arrived within the hour and continue to investigate the source of the deluge.
