Walk: Clayton Brook, Gregson Lane, Houghton, Brindle
Start Point: Home    
Distance: 10 miles Ascent: 800 feet
Time: 1.25 hours
Weather: Chilly with some rain towards the end
Comments: A short ride to try to beat the rain forecast later in the day - it just caught me for the last 10 minutes or so.

I've often driven past this construction on the A6 . . .

so today I stopped for a closer look to find what I thought it might be . . .

a memorial to the Victorian Underground reservoir which a visited just before it was demolished

I always seem to be stopped by a train at this crossing!
