Douglas Valley Walk

On New Year's Day Josie and I went for a stroll through the River Douglas Valley from the town centre up to the Plantations entrance off Wigan Lane. The Environment Agency have recently built a new Flood Defence System to protect property downstream in the town from regular flood damage.
