Sunday Stroll: Knott Lanes

This delightful wooded scene was photographed from the towpath of the Fairbottom Branch Canal, part of an easy walking route through Daisy Nook Country Park.

The horses are leaving the bridle path onto Knott Lanes, just downhill of Valley Aqueduct. Knott Lanes, now a dead end for motor vehicles, was once the main route between Ashton and Oldham. The River Medlock can be seen through the trees on the right, at the foot of a steep bank.

I was standing on the Oldham boundary, so everything you see in the photo is within the boundary of Ashton, proving that it is not all mills and chimneys!
