SD7908 : Bealey's Goit

near to Hollins, Bury, Great Britain

Bealey's Goit
Bealey's Goit
This picture shows a section of Bealey's Goit, now choked with vegetation. A goit is a manmade watercourse. I believe this one was constructed to supply water from the River Irwell to the nearby Bealey's bleach works.
