Hello Alan, what`s the pole for?
Wikipedia gives details of the River Douglas.
There a walkway all the way along the tunnel and my mate says that when he was at school he went and walked all the way through with some of his Standish school mates.
Ernest, I think the pole is actually a tree!
The pole is probably to keep the leaves away from the roots!
The pole is a tree Ernest.
There a old mill just to the left of that tunnel.
Here is another video showing the old water mill
Have just watched both your excellent video`s Mick. Were you looking for veins of gold beneath the millstones !!
There were plenty of `poles` but most were anything but upright as that in Alan`s photo above, which must be the tallest and most upright tree in the area.
yes mick i remember when i was around 15yrs old, me and my old mates from bradley village , also walked through this same tunnel ,when we reached the other end the watchman from the water treatment plant saw us and chased us back down the tunnel .
