Muddy steps into Gower Hey Woods

These muddy steps lead down from the TransPennine Trail into Gower Hey Woods. Normally duckboards provide a safe passage across the swampy ground at the bottom.

This photograph was taken a few weeks ago after a lot of heavy rain. The brook was obviously flowing too fast for the culvert and a small lake covered the duckboards.

See how it looked in April 2011.

Take a closer view on Hyde DP Xtra.

Since then we've had a great deal more rain and it is still falling so I imagine the water will have crept a lot higher since then but I won't be venturing down to take a look.


  1. Nice photo - pleasant looking spot .

  2. A lovely shot!
    That word verification is tough!
