Thanks Ron. More interesting than a Porche exiting Lodge Corner at Oulton Park

Special memories of the greenhouses at Haigh Hall. My parents and I always went in when I was a child. It was a little world of its own. I remember the fish and the lily-pads in the pond. I went there again a few years ago with a dear friend; the greenhouses were long gone but the area still held the magic of childhood days.

I remember the greenhouses at Haigh Hall, sadly all gone.

I love plants so to go in the greenhouses was a treat to say the least,why oh why did they have to go.

If everyone kept to the spirit of the site, i.e. all places, and people of Wigan, there would be no problem. Ron's contributions are a prime example, his collection of all things Wigan is exceptional to say the least.

I agree, JamesB, but we don't all have access to things equivalent to Ron's brilliant contributions. I uploaded all the old pics I had years ago...I just don't have any more. We must all just be thankful for the modern media which has allowed us all to see photos of the old Wigan to which we would never had access. I keep thinking the photos will dry up soon, and then someone, somewhere, comes across another memory in their attic! Long may that happen.

I never knew that they were called 'The Rest Gardens'

You are so right, Maureen. Why indeed did they have to go?
