Little Blackpool

I took the riverside path from Irwell Vale to Helmshore, following the River Ogden. Near here is an old viaduct and a dismantled railway. The stretch of water beyond the viaduct was at one time known as 'Little Blackpool' because of the number of bathers who enjoyed themselves in the pools.
