Description"The dam was constructed to power the Acklington Park Ironworks and is considered to be one of the finest 18th-century dams in England, and was unfortunately the site of the so-called Guyzance Tragedy. On 17 January 1945, ten soldiers drowned while taking part in a military exercise at Guyzance, on the River Coquet. The river was in full flood and their boat was swept over the weir and capsized. The men, all aged 18, were weighed down by full combat gear. See: http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/334298 for memorial." Photo by Russel Wills, 2012.
