Sky Watch: Sammy's Basin

(Click photo for larger version. Press Back button to return here.)

Today's Sky Watch shows Sammy's Basin in Daisy Nook Country Park, between Ashton and Oldham.

This is a return visit to the basin - we last saw it in March when it still looked fairly wintry.

The basin takes its name from Sammy Pearson, the canal's water bailiff, who lived in one of two cottages which at one time stood at the side of the basin, and who was a well-known character in the area. The basin, originally a round pound to store water between locks, is now a popular spot with local anglers.

See Birds Eye View of this location.

Sky Watch is a regular weekly feature on this photo blog. It links with websites all over the world with the general theme each week of looking upwards. Please take the opportunity to visit some of these other sites. I hope some new visitors have found their way here today, watching the skies!
