    Ingersley Vale Mill Culverts - Bollington

    In the late 1700's The river Bollington was put to good use, powering the various mills dotted
    along the river, bringng much needed prosperity to the surrounding areas.
    Ingersley Vale Mill, was one such mill, and after having a poke around of what's left of it,
    I decided to take a look what lay below...So waders on and in I go​

    Visted solo whilst passing through, as you do :D

    a section of tunnel, roughly 70 metres in length and eventually joins up further down river

    parts of the tunnel are starting to show the strain of the demo work up above

    this section is around 300 metres and runs directly under the mill

    looking back up-river where the culvert widens

    about as far as I could go before the river opens back up and runs back down towards Bollington

    Not the most hardcore of explores but well worth a wander, or wade...Cheers for looking :thumb
