Neil... you only want to tell everyone where you are....if your a Wiganer you know where Aspull is.


Comment by David Barker on 25th June 2010 at 11:13
Walked past the other day the water levels are dropping with the dry weather,nice photo Harry.


Comment by Eric B on 25th June 2010 at 12:16
Excellent photo Harry, Is it possible you could give more of a description for those not used to the area like myself,then maybe others can take a look, You certainly seem to know your way around different spots.


Comment by John on 25th June 2010 at 13:55
Lovely pic Harry, summers here.

Neil, Aspull's a beautiful part of Wigan, much nicer and colourful than where you are..... lol.

Hi. Eric B.
Head for Aspull from Wigan, when you cross the bridge over the canal at New Springs and start climbing, halfway up the hill turn left into Higher Lane, turn right after the hight barrier (walking)just before Mopin Lodge after 100 yards turn left onto the bridle path, the pool is on the left hand side 50 yards along. Cheers H.

Hi, Harry, Thanks a lot for info, Will be able to find now, You certainly know your way around.
