lovely pic.

I was up at the windmill last week and its only got two and a bit blades on it now.

On Rons photo it still got three and a bit.

Why cant it be restored to its former glory? It only needs a restoration project. We need to save our Heritage, before Wigan Council bulldoze it down.
It's been in poor condition for years now, so it makes you wonder
what the future holds...very sad.

Mick .It's surprising what photo shop can do.?


Comment by Helen on 8th March 2010 at 09:15
I believe there is a Windmill Trust, I see if I can locate an address....here in East Anglia we love our windmills of any shape or size & most are in use in some capacity, does the Haigh Estate belong to Wigan Metropolitan Borough/Council ? Even though it's not a very big windmill it worth looking after, it is part of this country's past after all is said & done.

Ron the blade that was missing was lying on the ground going rotten so I dont think photoshop would have been able to help to get it back in place.


Comment by David on 8th March 2010 at 09:45
It's been Photoshopped: Oh no!

Helen, Haigh Hall Estate does belong to Wigan Metro Council, it was they who removed all those lovely green houses that used to be next to the pond a few years ago.

English Heritage issue a FREE Conservation bulletin, 3/4 per year. Spring 2010 is called People Engaging with Places and covers concerns often raised on this site about buildings at risk. To put yourself on the mailing list email: mailinglist@english-heritage.org.uk
I repeat it's free.
