Treacle Mines

Sabden & the Nick O Pendle
I'd been really looking forward to free wheeling & zooming down here. As I peddled up through the woods, it started raining & by the time I got to the top of the hill, it was hail stoning. Instead of a lovely whizz down whooping away as I usually do, I was shouting 'ow, ow, ow' with my eyes half closed as the stinging ice pellets got me. Obviously by the time I was ready to peddle back up the hill, the rains had stopped.
Sabden used to be famed for its treacle mines, sadly they're now closed, but I did visit when I was little.
