A comment from Cyril on one of the latest "work-Wigan Dam" led me to this section.My 2018 view is taken approximately from the same location as the 1930's photo from Ron. I never knew that this area had been populated in the 1930's but it answers a query I made on my "work" photo that on a map from the 1930 there was a public house shown by the path to Bottling Wood.

Was about four years ago when I was down there, the last being some time before the dam construction began because we moved from that area, it was good to see that trees had been replaced and that nature had again encroached the area, but sad to see a modern day blemish - the molten remains of burnt out wheelie bins, but that is occurring everywhere. Thanks for posting your photos Barrie, good to see how it progressed and an excellent record for future references.
