Ladderedge Country Park
Canal Feeder in Ladderedge C.P. - Westwood Golf Course to the right
The small man-made stream bordering Ladderedge Country Park in Leek is the feeder from Rudyard Lake to the Leek arm of the Caldon Canal. Rudyard Lake was constructed at the end of the 18th century to supply water to the Leek Canal. It runs 2½ miles from Rudyard Lake to the canal head at the edge of Leek. Westwood Golf Club sits prettily in the valley to the right in the photo. (Panasonic Lunix TZ10)
