Pleasant walks with camera and three dogs

White Coppice Wander

It was a bit of a mixed bag of weather today, with imtermittent sunshine, ominious black clouds and occasional showers, but all in all it was a pleasant afternoon’s wander along the waterway at White Coppice known as The Goit. This is a man made water channel that transfers water from Roddlesworth Reservoir to Anglezarke Reservoir, with a path at the side that goes from the hamlet of White Coppice to the village of Brinscall. It’s a lovely walk at any time of year, with shady trees alongside the stream that protect you from unwanted rain or provide a cool canopy on hot days. And of course Brett, Molly and Sam like it because they get to play in lots of water that’s shallow enough to paddle in. 😉

No game today. The tiny cricket pitch at White Coppice where I parked the car.

This was once a reservoir but has now been drained and is gradually turning into a meadow.
