Nice one Ian you can almost hear it, which waterfall is it? There are a couple in the Plantations, Fairy Glen and one near Whelley, it looks too big to be Fairy Glen.

Comment by anna on 29th June 2011 at 01:21

Beautiful...poetry in motion.


Comment by David on 29th June 2011 at 09:36
Don't think it's the Fairy Glen - could be wrong!


Comment by Janice on 29th June 2011 at 10:41
Very nice photo Ian, I am hoping that in the future I will get somewhere near to this standard. Anyone know of any courses around Wigan?


Comment by Harry C. on 29th June 2011 at 11:35
Looks like the waterfall that feeds the Yellow Brook.


Comment by Julie on 29th June 2011 at 12:43
Fantastic picture...If it is fairy glen, how did you get that far down?


Comment by cullie on 29th June 2011 at 16:38
this is the stepped waterfall which flows into the duggie at whelley. it flows under the old whelley loop line.


Comment by rebian on 29th June 2011 at 17:20
It's the waterfall near to Whelley, you can access it from Plantation Gates near to The Alex pub, thanks for the comments everyone.

Janice, you may find the book 'Understanding Exposure' by Bryan Peterson, a good place to start.


Comment by christine bishop on 30th June 2011 at 09:11
beautiful. so peacefull,well from here


Comment by Wheechair Babe on 19th July 2011 at 18:25
Looks beautiful - bet it isn't accessable for me!


Comment by josie on 29th July 2011 at 22:18
hi wheechair babe,this waterfall is accessable to you, if you know where the now closed pub the alexander is in whelly well theres a school across the road you can go through the school yard and come on to the path that takes u into haigh hall you will see the water fall on your right as you go down.


Comment by josie on 29th July 2011 at 22:21
last time i saw it i thought it was a bit overgrown and could have done with some attention it would be a shame to let it go.
