This shows the upper part of the Roch Valley above the village of Summit. Of particular interest is the circular kiln-house of Chelburn Brickworks, already disused, with its central smoke-stack heating all of the kilns equally so that they could be loaded and unloaded in rotation. The Rochdale Canal is prominent as it descends the locks on the western side of the Pennines, with the river and road also being squeezed into the same valley, (the railway here is underground, in Summit Tunnel). The white house centre right is Wilmers, and the outline of the Summit Inn, where once the Todmorden buses met the Rochdale trams, can just be picked out to the left of the road.
