Marsh Brook, Hindley
Started by: daveŠ (3468) Report abuse
It's been over sixty years ago that I was near it, it ran, for the most part, almost parallel to Sandy Lane at the bottom of an incline. I remember it being a fast flowing brook, maybe three or four foot wide in some places. One small area near the former sanatorium was known as the sandhole, part of the embankment was dug away leaving nothing but sand, as kids, we'd play for hours down there. I wondered if anyone had ventured there recently?
