FLOOD

 

In 2002, a flood occurred in the Dovestone area which took away some of the track and parts of the bridge leading from the top of Greenfield reservoir to the confluence of the Birchen Clough and Home Clough. Fortunately, nobody was injured but it must have been quite a force to cause such damage as seen in the photos displayed.
