Crossing the Leeds & Liverpool Canal at Grey Heights - bordered by some new town houses

Heading down to Anglezarke Reservoir . . .
which was frozen at this end . . .
but clear of ice further south
The Mallard seems to be attracting a lot of attention from the ladies
Waterman's Cottage, also known as Heapey Cottage, was built by Liverpool Corporation for one of its employees
I decided to explore Dean Black Brook . . .
where I found an icicle wonderland . . .
hanging against coloured rock . . .
and worth a few . . .
I have been here before but soon left the lower path due to difficult navigation . . .
but today I headed further along . . .
and had to cross to the opposite side - before eventually climbing up the steep bank
New development at Brinscall Lodge . . .
with a spot to rest weary feet . . .
or enjoy the playground
