Probably the most unusual photo featured on Photo-a-Day.

My grandmother, the former Daisy Wood was born here at the old Wigan Girls High School in 1883.

What a brill picture. Where was it shot? Very spooky feel to it.


Comment by Mick on 22nd February 2010 at 07:20
These photos of the day are getting more interesting and show places you dont normally see.


Comment by Maureen on 22nd February 2010 at 10:57
I have to agree with you Dave. Very unusual.


Comment by jay on 22nd February 2010 at 11:18
it sewer is a good pic


Comment by janet on 22nd February 2010 at 12:23
That is different.

For a underground tunnel or sewer pipe, it looks very clean..


Comment by Jo Anne on 22nd February 2010 at 12:24
I'll echo the earlier comments, Stewart.
Thank you for that great photograph :o)


Comment by David Barker on 22nd February 2010 at 13:21
That is a great photo,very errie and claustrophobic i expect, lets not forget the men who built these tunnels and sewers many years ago there workmanship as really stood the test of time.


Comment by Eric Turner on 22nd February 2010 at 15:23
Sheryl, what were you doing up at 04.49 appart from making this mistake? E.T.


Comment by Catherine on 22nd February 2010 at 15:37
I agree David. Very erie and claustrophopic but very interesting nevertheless. Exactly whereabouts is it though Stewart?


Comment by Bob on 22nd February 2010 at 17:00

Comment by Stew on 22nd February 2010 at 17:38

Comment by Del on 22nd February 2010 at 17:58
Great picture! I've heard that Wigan has a lot of tunnels underground that are not just for sewerage and that some lead to Haigh Hall???


Comment by A Grafter on 22nd February 2010 at 19:55
I used to go through this tunnel as a young lad, it goes under the railway line at Whitley crossing.


Comment by Ken R on 23rd February 2010 at 01:47
To David Barker. Do you know Harold Barker who worked at Dairy Pit, I know him from there, years ago.
Thanks.


Comment by A parr on 23rd February 2010 at 03:29
That tunnel cant be a sewer ,its got a rubber type floor.Perhaps its comeing from haigh Hall
