Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 29th June, 2011)
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.
what a gorgous pic,played all my childhood in the plantations and did not know that excisted.where abouts is it ian?
Beautiful...poetry in motion.
Don't think it's the Fairy Glen - could be wrong!
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?
Looks like the waterfall that feeds the Yellow Brook.
Fantastic picture...If it is fairy glen, how did you get that far down?
this is the stepped waterfall which flows into the duggie at whelley. it flows under the old whelley loop line.
It's the waterfall near to Whelley, you can access it from Plantation Gates near to The Alex pub, thanks for the comments everyone.
Excuse me ......must dash to the ladies room!!!! beautiful picture.
There is a bigger view of this waterfall on 4th June 2009 on this site
Janice, you may find the book 'Understanding Exposure' by Bryan Peterson, a good place to start.
beautiful. so peacefull,well from here
Looks beautiful - bet it isn't accessable for me!
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.
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.
