2017-02-12 (Day 043) Manuel Burn

This is the Manuel Burn, which has its source in the Blackbraes and flows to the River Avon at Manuel Mill farm, near the village of Whitecross.

Previously, I found a web site that described in graphic detail how the burn had impeded the retreat of troops who had been defeated in one of the battles in the area, but sadly I cannot find it any more. However, in searching for it I have read about a ruined nunnery, and this will definitely be something I shall be looking to explore in the near future.

This stretch, however, is pretty much exclusively used as dog-walking territory now!
