Oh no, what's going on here? Who did this?


Comment by Mick on 3rd April 2010 at 06:48
I do like these photos of the day that shows the good and bad side of Wigan at one time I dont think a photo like this would have made onto here.

WOW!!!! a trolley burial ground!!


Comment by Cyril on 3rd April 2010 at 08:34
I can remember in the 1960's men who dredged the canal with a grappling iron for scrap metal, they used to pull out old bikes and prams. There must be a small fortune to be made in scrap metal nowadays with all those old shopping trolleys and trugs etc.

Shopping trolley graveyard....who & what are the people that do this ?


Comment by aitch on 3rd April 2010 at 10:04
yet every year, people go swimming and diving into this sort of environment


Comment by M.O.T. on 3rd April 2010 at 11:13
Mick you are so right , we need to see the good and the bad side of Wigan, but please, as it is Easter weekend, could we have some of the good i.e. something with colour and beauty.

They say Mother Earth will shout out loud when she's had enough!

How disgusting and how sad..More and more I am losing faith in mankind...soooo many lazy disgusting people about..


Comment by COLIN HARLOW on 3rd April 2010 at 20:19
Its bone idle people who do this without a care in the world. I presume trolleys from Asda. I remember new supermarket trolleys cost £50 each in the early 1980s, god knows how much they cost today. Supermarket loose thousands over the years. At the end of the day, Its you and I who pay for it with our shopping bill.


Comment by dave johnson on 3rd April 2010 at 20:41
I walk across that bridge twice a day and the other week when this picture was taken I counted Thirty Seven trolleys of one shape or another. What pleasure do these Brain-Donors get out of this?


Comment by Helen on 3rd April 2010 at 21:19
Don't you have to pay with a £1 coin or token to use a trolley in your part of the world ? I won't say any more about this pic because it won't be allowed .........only that we haven't any convienient canals.


Comment by David Fairclough on 4th April 2010 at 02:05
So sad, this is only a tiny spot of the canal, just imagine how many trolleys are in the rest of it. The Dougy near Tesco is just as bad


Comment by Les Bagg on 4th April 2010 at 10:58
You know, I've never seen anyone walking down the street or anyhting with a shopping trolley, but, every time the canal is low there's always loads of them in there!
Is it a moonlight cult or something to put them in the canal when nobody is watching????


Comment by Susan on 4th April 2010 at 14:46
It's an absolute nightmare for the canal boats as well.


Comment by deko on 16th April 2010 at 19:31
I certainly won't be buying a rod lic-
ence for that stretch of water. Now we
know why the fish have gone.
