Children fishing in the River Manifold at Ilam. 1929
About this image
The river Manifold, rises under the shadow of Axe Edge, south of Buxton, keeping close to the Dove. It flows past the popular tourist spot of Whetton Mill where in summer it disappears underground, except in very wet weather, and reappears when it reaches the grounds of Ilam Hall, after which it eventually meets the river Dove which forms much of the boundary between Staffordshire and Derbyshire.
