Work took me to Bolton today so during my dinner hour I decided to pop down the river Croal. Quite a nice stroll with a visit into some of the buildings foundations (the pics from there came out crap). The second section has a nice set of stairs but gets pretty boring after that, As I came out there were UU workers all over the place like it was some sort of convention, not a word was said but I got a few odd looks The hole half way up the wall leads to this And into the next one Then when I came out this happened
This was our second visit to this area, i have no history on this place all i can tell you is it is a stone quarry with 4 stone mines within the faces, there was a rail line within the quarry which went down hill to the railway for off loading there stone. on with the pics. 2 of the ways in woot. A reet nice 'miners deads' wall hope you liked the pic's ill see what info i can dig up, to be honest im mowed under with work
As I can not remember if I posted this and find no record on this site This is a late post. After a few fail splores within the Boilton area This was the only place left. If it was not run by steam it was fired up by compressed air.....or held up by screws on d'a walls... There are many forms of engines within this cramped museum and if your lucky enough like I was i ended with a photo shoot and talk with Alf (Fred Dibnah's right hand man) After leaving here is only seamed fit to see Freds house, short drive later and been told £12 each we decided to grab a pic from the road side instead.....when i'm back in work I'll call again.
