This is the Armsgrove Viaduct  built between 1847 and 1848 by the Blackburn, Darwen and Bolton Railway to bridge Bradshaw Brook and pre-dates the building of the Wayoh Reservoir which now sits below it. We arrived by train across that very viaduct. This was part of the latest Superlative Walk, starting and finishing at the marvellous Strawbury Duck (sic) and which also passed the Turton and Entwistle reservoir. 

In addition, we passed some disused octagonal brick factory buildings, Turton Tower, the lovely Chapeltown, which is a village not a town and although it has a church does not have a chapel. En route Bruce and Bonnie enacted a scene from Reservoir Dogs and Bruce volunteered for a spell in the stocks.

I gather this is my 2500th Blip, which just goes to show how time flies when you are having fun, getting to know some lovely people from all over the world and learning about places and photography on the way.
