Modifying the end of the launder

Richard has now finished fabricating the iron framework to carry the modifications to the end of the launder. The idea is
  1. To carry the water further so that it will enter the wheel at a higher point, so that it will be falling as far as possible while it is in the wheel
  2. To deposit the water at a better angle so that its momentum is not acting against the motion of the wheel
  3. To add side cheeks to stop the water splashing out of the wheel
