A very welcome change, Harry, from the recent photo`s.
Reminded me of the babbling brook song. See:-

Water falling step by step
Bounce and flounce; drip and flip

Dance and rush with joy and glee
Swirl and whirl; slide and crash

From a distance just seems a trickle
Then onward flow..

Dribble, dribble

The best things in life are the things you can't buy.

I bet this little Wigan waterfall would look and sound lovely on a video.

Lovely photo Harry.
Can you please tell me exactly where this is?

Thanks all for your comments. Brian from Masschusets, if you know the Alexandra pub in Whelley you cross the road follow the road around what is now Canon Sharples School when you reach the tree line
you will see the stream follow it up about fifty yards and you come to the water fall.

Lovely photo, Harry.

Not been up there for a good while.
The waterfall looks more natural now than when it was first built.

It will always be lovingly known in our household as "Grandpa Falls". After my Mum died my late Dad used to come on family walks with us. More often than not he'd have had a nip of brandy before setting out and it wasn't unusual for him to take a tumble.He came a cropper here once.
At least he was relaxed when he fell and came to no harm!
Happy memories. Thankyou.
