And now we have some photos from Arthur at Otterspool and Chadkirk showing the river in spate. Some of the bank has been washed away at Otterspool and the temporary causeway at Chadkirk has gone completely:

Thanks for putting them up.

A brand new album featuring photos of Marple District Centre taken by Marple UDC in 1970 and stored in Marple Local History Society archives has been added to the Virtual Tour over the last couple of days. This is a fascinating snapshot of local history and documents a major change to the town centre. Interesting that it has found it's way to the top of the pile of folders at a time when new changes seem to be afoot for this area of the town!

Added to the Virtual Tour today are some Jinks family photos from Marple Local History Society Archives. Unfortunately these are scans from poor quality photo copies, so they are not great images. What a shame we can't get our hands on the originals to scan properly  :(

Arthur Procter has taken photos of Dan Bank in approximately the same positions for the last 4 years, before during and after the stabilisation works.

Spring has been a little later this year but we now have the 2012 photos on line:

In the same album are some new photos from Bill Beard of the Otterspool Bridge Hydro Power scheme.

Also, Bill has sent in some photos of flooding at Cataract Mill:

They're done now, and thank you for the reminder  :)
