Artist's Description

Taken at Moses Gate Country Park also known as Crompton Lodges. Moses Gate Country park is a 750 acre site situated at Moses Gate in the Croal Irwell Valley, 3 miles south of Bolton Centre on the A6053 which connects Farnworh to Little Lever.

The name Moses G comes from the joining of two words, one a corruption of the word ‘mosses’ meaning peaty or marshy lands, and gate is from the Old English ‘gata’ meaning a way across, so we have the way through the mosses. The alternate name of Crompton Lodges comes from the fact that the lakes were mill ponds or lodges supplying water to the mills of Samuel Crompton and family.

Samuel Crompton born 1753-1827 from Bolton was famous for his invention of the Spinning Mule, his ideas revolutionised the cotton industry.
