Walk to Lead Mines Clough
I had intended going for a walk near White Coppice this afternoon, but when I got just past the Anglezarke Reservoir embankment on Knowsley Road the road was closed. Instead, I decided that as I hadn’t been to Lead Mines Clough for at least a couple of months, I would walk the dogs to there. So I parked on Knowsley Read and with Brett, Molly and Sam, walked past Yarrow Reservoir and on to Allance Bridge then into Lead Mines Clough.

It looks like United Utilities are draining Yarrow Reservoir for some reason, possibly to repair a leak.

Molly, Brett and Sam waiting for me to throw a stick. Looks like Molly had rolled in something “interesting” (and probably smelly). Fortunately it washed off when she had a swim in the brook.
