Nice one Ian you can almost hear it, which waterfall is it? There are a couple in the Plantations, Fairy Glen and one near Whelley, it looks too big to be Fairy Glen.

Don't think it's the Fairy Glen - could be wrong!

Very nice photo Ian, I am hoping that in the future I will get somewhere near to this standard. Anyone know of any courses around Wigan?

Looks like the waterfall that feeds the Yellow Brook.

Fantastic picture...If it is fairy glen, how did you get that far down?

this is the stepped waterfall which flows into the duggie at whelley. it flows under the old whelley loop line.

It's the waterfall near to Whelley, you can access it from Plantation Gates near to The Alex pub, thanks for the comments everyone.

Janice, you may find the book 'Understanding Exposure' by Bryan Peterson, a good place to start.

Looks beautiful - bet it isn't accessable for me!

hi wheechair babe,this waterfall is accessable to you, if you know where the now closed pub the alexander is in whelly well theres a school across the road you can go through the school yard and come on to the path that takes u into haigh hall you will see the water fall on your right as you go down.

last time i saw it i thought it was a bit overgrown and could have done with some attention it would be a shame to let it go.
