View from the hillside near post DD at Dove Stone – work continues on the dam which is still closed, along with the upper car park. “Opening in Spring”, apparently, whatever that might mean.
Car parks and main footpaths absolutely heaving, but everything looks peaceful in this photo! Note that vandalised post V has become a plaque V on the nearby stile.
Autumn has come to Dove Stone – photo is an unusual view of the reservoir from the East. Also knocked off a complete review of the Hoyles Park map.
Yesterday Gorse Hall. Today, Reddish Vale, Dove Stone (photo), Nuttall Park, Blackleach. Tomorrow Chorlton Water Park, Bramhall, Bruntwood.
Possibly the best smartphone orienteering app to date – MapRun. Check out the smartphones page – we have half-a-dozen of our most popular parks set up for it – Chorlton Water Park, Dove Stone, Heaton Park, Lyme Park, Sale Water Park, Wythenshawe Park.
Fence with a plaque on restored to the vertical at Urmston Meadows; plaque replaced on bridge at Reddish Vale; full tour of Dove Stone. All in a days work – and now there are no issues that we know about in any parks, other than quite a bit of painting would be good.
Picture is Dove Stone post Y, which had been reported as very hard to find – quite possibly because the circle was nowhere near the right place.
A set of keys has been found at Dove Stone – near a place unlikely to be visited unless you were orienteering (control CC). Looks like house keys and a make of car. Contact us if they could be yours.
