A rainy ride this morning along the Manchester, Bury and Bolton Canal at Radcliffe, and those bramble runners can have your eye out if you’re not careful!
Mind you, they’ve no canal left in Bolton and Bury so perhaps we could call what’s left The Radcliffe Canal.
There was a Himalayan Balsam plant by the Withins Goyt bridge too…it’s getting closer…it’s all over Bury and the canal remains at Little Lever are full of it and Giant Hogweed I’m told.
There are a few H. Balsam plants inside Elton Reservoir walls…
Bleak pictures this morning of the Radcliffe end of Elton Reservoir. – but at least I got this camera sorted at last!
