This bridge spans the Goit half way between Coppice and Waterman's Cottage


The track back to White Coppice


Looking up the overflow that comes from Grange Water


This is an old track bed from long closed quarry workings

The end house across the lodge is Hillside - where my grandparents (and parents for a short time) lived


The ridge in the distance is Stronsey Bank. This photo was taken from the embankment of No 6 lodge

Later the same day I took a short walk around Wheelton

Narrow boats at Wheelton Boat Club


This is one of the locks between The Top Lock and Town Lane


Looking back to the Top Lock


Several of the locks are visible here.


After leaving the canal, a short walk over South Hill brings you to the playing Fields of St Chads, with its nice view to St Barnabas Church


And arriving back in Wheelton the statue of the Red Lion on the pub of its namesake waits to greet you
