Leesbrook to Cairo Mills

I explored the area around Leesbrook and the Leesbrook Mill. The Medlock goes underground near the Mill on the South side of Lees Rd then re-emerges the other side of Nether Lees. I decided to track back briefly to Nether Lees first before returning to the Lees Rd and the path going North.

I then walked back north from Brook Side, over Bank Top, along Sun Hill and finally to Cairo Mills and Majestic Mills on Dunham st.
