2010 Top 10 - Number 8
Peak Forest Canal
22nd December 2010
My memory number eight is of scrabbling round the foundations of the Marple Aqueduct.
The morning happened to be my 49th birthday, but I had completely forgotten about it till is was half way down the valley side and my mobile rang - three times. My family all seemed to decide simultaneously to call and sing happy birthday to me in this precarious position.
It was fine still spring morning and had a whale of a time out there on my lonesome, with Jeff still asleep in the boat. Getting a decent photograph is nigh on impossible, but this structure is best viewed from below.
