Horrobin Cottage


On the chimney breast of Horrobin Cottage is the Liver Bird and a cross.


Looking back at Horrobin Cottage


Soon after leaving the gateposts there is a faint path off The Street which leads to this large quarry


All that remains of any buildings in the quarry

Veer to the right at the fork


The left hand route leads to Cunliffe Farm


Soon you approach a bridge that crosses the overflow into the River Yarrow


The overflow


And the overflow is big


H stands on the bridge. The long straight section leads to the house of the same name


Looking across Upper Rivington Reservoir to Winter Hill and Rivington Pike


The house called The Street


This is now 6 apartments, but originally it was a compensation house built by Liverpool Water Company to replace one flooded in the valley below the reservoir. It was first occupied by Peter Martin.


Looking back towards The Rivington Embankment


Looking back at the reservoir


The gateway to the house named The Street. Peter Martins initials are on each gatepost


A wider view of the gateway


It's nigh impossible to get a good photo from the north side of the house


The pets gravestone erected by Joyce, but who was Joyce? Take a look here


Close by Sam, Thomas and Laddie's grave is this newer one erected for Zeb


After leaving the house named the Street, the track climbs to these ornatecompensation houses


Looking back to the two houses
