This is probably the original 1880 concrete structure as designed by McLeod. The slots for the main diversion gate can be seen but the gantry, threaded shaft and screw and wheel that operated the gate has gone. To the right, dirty water was discharged to Mill Creek. The gate slots in the diversion are filled with concrete and the operating screws and wheels have gone.

The view is downstream looking towards the entrance portal of tunnel 6 just 20 metres away in the blackberry.
