"The water supply at Higher Clough came down a ladder drain into a pond then into a row of three troughs in the yard and then down into a trough at the back of the house. It was then available for human consumption after the cows had had their fill. I can remember a time at Higher Clough when there was no water in the house. you used to have to go on with a bucket for drinking water and carry it from the river which was a good way away. I still donít waste water." (L. Blackwell)
