Burnt Edge to New chapel lane


a simular route

Evie is walking up the path from walker fold farm
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_collieries_in_Lancashire_since_1854

this is called Chadwick’s close farm I looked this up on the map
there was another farm in Halliwell with the same name

can you see the mast ? me and Evie are practicing on the walkie talkies

walker fold farm

Leo is not happy we found out later he got his first tooth !

can you see the stone track this is for the colliery !

the stone slabs stopped the heavy carts getting stuck !

this is the burnt edge colliery pit head

some of the old mine buildings

can you see the Caterpillar ?

me and Evie exploring on the old walls

there is a small tunnel here – this may be a old brick kiln ?

a hole you have to be careful when exploring

I am helping Evie cross the uneven grass

the old colliery

the track above the old colliery is very different  they did not lay out stone slabs !

this is the air shaft marked on the map
