taken 6 years ago, near to Compstall, Stockport, Great Britain

Coal Barge, Etherow Country Park
Coal Barge, Etherow Country Park
Rusted remains of an abandoned coal barge in Etherow Country Park.
Open-cast coal mining in Ernocroft and Long Alders Wood (which overlook Etherow Country Park) provided a power source for the mills at Compstall, and a private canal was used to transport the coal to Compstall mills.
The remains of the tramway are still viewable in Ernocroft Wood, and one open-cast mine in Long Alders Wood is knows as the "Keg Pool".
