Path to Apethorn Mill

This picture by guest photographer Tom Wigley is of a footpath that leads off Apethorn Lane, down to the river Tame, past the site of Apethorn (aka Gee Cross) Mill.

When the mill boiler blew up it landed here!

A picture of the explosion is on Old Hyde.

I'm curious. How old is the path? Did it start out level with the ground on both sides of it?

Thanks for you comments. The writing has corrected itself since I distructed the photo of my family! Not too sure about all the whys and wherefores! Now my 'comments' word has disappeared!

I used to go riding at Godley Stud by the way!

Woow, this is wonderful place. I would so love to visit this place it is like a novel-like, mysteries-look road to me.

A nice shot. Moody with atmosphere. Brings the imagination alive.
