Foundations

I spotted this red-chipped brick lying on the shore of Ogden reservoir in Piethorne valley during a lowering of the water level recently. As the reservoir itself is actually situated in Newhey up in Greater Manchester, I found the kiln-fired readable indentation on its surface to be quite apt for the brick’s new watery location: a foundation stone for successive generations to stumble upon.
