605 Rochdale Canal from Mills Hill

"First Cow" is what some people call this area and the Rochdale Canal from Mills Hill certainly is a gem of open countryside. Here you leave the city behind and, passing under motorways and roads, follow a canal hidden from view in a secret world where horses graze the fields and ducks potter on the water.
