Album... Autumn around.. Sheffield - UK.
Mid November .. 'Penny engine lane' .. Eckington.
The 'Moss valley' into which this trail extends.. was at one time a thriving industrial community with water powered mills and coal mines. This particular lane carried a light railway.. to aid the industries..and on which locals would pay a penny to take a ride on the train... Hence the name...''Penny engine lane''
Wyming brook drive - Sheffield.
Now closed to motor traffic...this trail branches left to go around the 'Rivelin dams' - straight ahead leads to the higher 'Redmires dams' .. four reservoirs in total which are used for nearby Sheffield water supplies.
