Norman Hill reservoir to Windy Hill Mast

A shot taken from the dam wall of Norman Hill reservoir in Piethorne Valley, Milnrow up towards the mast at Windy Hill at the side of the A672 and M62 motorway on the Pennines. With the water level being lower than normal at the reservoir when this picture was taken, the release valve walkway is stranded high and dry, giving the impression a drought is under way: in reality, Norman Hill reservoir is situated higher than Piethorne, Kitcliffe and Ogden reservoirs and its overflow sluice can often be seen channelling water down to the others when need arises.
