SJ8393 : Hough End Clough, Red Lion Brook

near to Withington, Manchester, Great Britain

Hough End Clough, Red Lion Brook
Hough End Clough, Red Lion Brook
It appears that the Clough is the last remnant of an ancient wood. The 1848 OS map shows that Chorlton Brook was well wooded on both banks at that time, from its present eastern limit up to Hough End Bridge (Nell Lane). Hough End Hall, which was built in 1596, was named after the Clough; evidence of the age and importance of the wood. (taken from an information board next to the path through the Clough)
