Explore ruined farmhouse at holders plantation ,Winter Hill , Horwich

a old mine look very close-bell pit(nearest end)

old mine wall ?

this is a local brick found at old farmhouse -has the words Horwich on it , perhaps Dickerson  as well?
other bricks were winter Hill bricks,

collapsed old farm house near holders plantation near burnt edge colliery

this is a old dam the route crosses the old dam here is the breech to the wall -yes you get your feet wet !
along this path on the dam we found baby frogs but not today

exposed bank – mix of coal and burnt coal -from the brickworks on winter hill

very odd water  drain this has a very rhythmic flow (sometimes fast then slow) –  mechanical ?

examples of rubbish left where we parked today -take it home and recycle!
all types plastic can be recycled -when we lived in Prague all plastic is collected and recycled !!!!!!!

  1. Great route! And that water flow is really interesting. So sad to see people not caring about the environment, even worse (as Dad said) that Bolton do not recycle properly!
