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

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
