River Dean Culvert - Bollington​

The town of Bollington rose from a small agricultural back-water in the Macclesfield forest
to play an important role in the production of cotton, utilising it's rivers and streams to
power the cotton mills.
This section of the river Dean is at the far end of Bollington recreation grounds, and runs
for about 200 metres under the main road and canal, before re-appearing upstream by
some rather picturesque cottages


Heading upstream under the footbridge, the river levels are still low, so it's easy going


The brickwork has a really nice blue tinge to it


looking back towards the footbridge in the recreation grounds




The far end of the tunnel leading to the riverside cottages


Looking back up towards the canal, and someones back garden atop the arch

Not the most exciting explore, but a nice wander none-the-less

Cheers for looking
