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 :D

The River Croal is a river located in Greater Manchester, England. It is a tributary of the River Irwell.Rising at the confluence of Middle Brook and Deane Church Brook, it flows eastwards through Bolton, collecting Gilnow Brook and the larger River Tonge at Darcy Lever. Most of the river is culverted through Bolton town centre, running under Knowsley Street; Market Place and Bridge Street. Before 1836 the River Croal formed the boundary between the townships of Great and Little Bolton.

The river's name is derived from the Old English croh and wella, the winding stream. It was possibly originally called the Middlebrook along its entire length as early references mention the Mikelbrok, (mycel and broc), the great stream but not the Croal.

It meets the Irwell at Nob End.

The hole half way up the wall leads to this
