More about this scene

Situated below Winter Hill on Rivington Moor, Adlington developed as a textile town before the advent of the railway because of its proximity to the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, which runs behind the main street. Many of its stone cottages were built to house the mill's workers, which still stands on the edge of the town.
