Rocher Vale

Rocher Vale, at the northern extremity of Ashton under Lyne, is a rugged part of the valley of the River Medlock, upstream from Park Bridge.

This was the location of Rocher Vale Colliery and the building in the photo is what is left of the Engine House, which housed a steam engine to pump water out of the mine.


  1. What a lovely structure. I'd like to live there.

  2. OH, for the record, I've lived in lofts built in several old industrial structures, and grotty old inudustrial things have magnetic appeal for me.
