Looking upstream at the river Goyt from Carrington Bridge SJ9090 : Entrance to Vernon Park. The gable end of the former Rifle Volunteer SJ9090 : Former Rifle Volunteer is well covered in vegetation and still carries the old name board. I suspect access to remove the sign and vegetation would require scaffolding to be placed in the river which won't be a cheap operation.
River Goyt
The Goyt rises on the moors of Axe Edge, near the Cat and Fiddle Inn. It runs from the Errwood and Fernilee reservoirs, north of Buxton to Stockport where it joins the River Tame LinkExternal link to form the Mersey.

It is also fed by the River Etherow which flows from the Woodhead reservoirs and joins near Marple Bridge, the River Sett which joins at New Mills and Todd Brook which joins at Horwich End.
