My route:
Note from Dad: the camera was wet and so some of the Photos have a blurred edge at the bottom,
apologies I had been out with jake on a navigation in the mist , I dropped the camera in a stream when i lost my footing on a slippery rock.

New chapel lane  we went  to walk up to the New chapel

New chapel was started in 1716!
http://www.urc.org.uk/church/view?church_id=169
After being ejected from Horwich Chapel, Richard Pilkington built “New Chapel” for the nonconformists between 1716 and 1719. It was enlarged in 1805. 
http://www.theboltonnews.co.uk/news/historyben/profiles/4878432.Horwich_profiled___a_look_at_your_area/
The Pilkingtons were farmers who became gentry, Richard Pilkington was owner of rights of the Horwich Manor.William Pilkington (1765–1831) became a physician and apothecary in St Helens and his sons Richard (1795–1869) and William (1800–1872) were the founders of Pilkington Glass.

Leo looking around

there are a lot of bare trees now which have lost their leaves.

This is a old bridge made out of a stone slab !

It looks like i have three arms ! -its Evie behind me !

the leaves are beautiful at this time of year

I catch a tree to stop me as its very muddy and slippy wish i wore my trainers !

across another Bridge

we spent some time stroking the horse he was very gentle !

This is a place where you can get on a horse , can you see the stone trough ?
this is called Wilson fold farm

WallsuchesBetween Montserrat and Horwich is Wallsuches, and it is thought that the name is derived from ‘wella’, the Old English for water, and ‘soc’, Old English for soak. It was here that the Ridgeway family moved their bleaching croft, from the centre of Bolton, to a site by the stream called Pearl Brook in the late 18th century. Bottom o’th’Moor is just above Wallsuches.
