Dramatic! Is that Jack-the-Ripper hiding around the corner ?


Comment by John on 1st March 2011 at 08:37
Horrible, come on, get out in the parks and country-side, where flowers and birds have come to life.

Good quality Matthew, but a sight for sore eyes.


Comment by Billy on 1st March 2011 at 10:34
No John,

We have had enough of birds!!!! Scenic views pleas!


Comment by Ron D on 1st March 2011 at 11:10
They don't build em like this any more.


Comment by A Parr Aussie on 1st March 2011 at 11:16
I think this is a great shot of the outside plumbing.Ex Plumber.Not keen on the hanging cables .


Comment by henry7 on 1st March 2011 at 14:42
Great picture Matthew, something different for a change.


Comment by John on 1st March 2011 at 15:32
What are we looking at???????


Comment by cindy on 1st March 2011 at 15:46
Where is it.


Comment by zoe on 1st March 2011 at 15:59
i like it, dont know why lol but i do... it does remind me of how alan described it....


Comment by viv on 1st March 2011 at 16:57
I bet it stinks of wee up there.lol


Comment by Matthew Cooper on 1st March 2011 at 17:02
john, seeing as i work full time i don't have much time to get out and about other than around town.
Cindy, it's the back of the big building on Wallgate. down the alleyway next to cash converters


Comment by John on 1st March 2011 at 19:08
Come off it Matthew, Mesnes Park's not a stone's throw away from there.


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 1st March 2011 at 22:39
Looks like the back door to the public bar.........do people really walk down there .....at night ?


Comment by Ellen M on 1st March 2011 at 23:03
Whoever said "Modern Wigan has no peer"?????
Still, to be fair, photographically, the shot does have merit.


Comment by David Fairclough on 2nd March 2011 at 00:00
I agree with Billy, enough of the birds.
Reminds me of working at the UCP in market St back in the 70's


Comment by Helen on 2nd March 2011 at 08:43
I'm no photographer but I like this
dark, sinister pic, very artistic....I have just looked at Wednesday's pic, the narrow boat & hawthorn berries, this in total contast..it's good.


Comment by henry7 on 2nd March 2011 at 09:26
You certainly created a lot of interest with this one Matthew. Great to see something different. Fed up with things relating to trains and train lines.


Comment by Margaret on 2nd March 2011 at 10:54
A great picture, variety is the spice of life.


Comment by Ian on 2nd March 2011 at 12:08
Good one. The parts of Wigan we never get to see are the best shots. We have had enough of birds, fields, and rubbish...


Comment by Matthew Cooper on 2nd March 2011 at 16:28
John, Mesnes park is fair grotty at times and i wanted to show a part of wigan few see (as some picked up on). Also i think you mean "eye sore" as a sight for sore eyes would contradict your point


Comment by David Fairclough on 2nd March 2011 at 20:30
The more I look at this photo the more I like it. It would be interesting to see the same photo in colour to see the comparison.
Thanks Metthew


Comment by Ellen on 4th March 2011 at 23:17
I've really enjoyed the birds and trees, not to mention the flowers,narrow boats and all,however,this has a really gritty,almost "Filme Noir" feel to it---fascinating,and a great picture.


Comment by tony g on 5th March 2011 at 11:24
Nice shot like it.


Comment by Jon on 20th March 2011 at 16:20
Looks like an album cover for an indie band. Great photo :)
