Dredging_Shepherd_Wheel4.jpg Because of the position of the dam at Shepherd Wheel it wasn't possible to get machinery next to the water. Behind the engines in the pictures is the river and the high bank is the dam wall. At one end of the dam is the little bridge on Hangingwater Rd, and at the other end are the mill buildings, so there was a system of pulleys rigged with the engines on the main path below the dam wall.
