That's lovely. When I was working, I always judged how the nights were getting lighter/darker through the year by the sunset over Ince Cemetery as I passed it on the bus going home.

Rev, have you taken the photo next to the wall leading to Springs Branch? Beautiful, well done.


Comment by Rev David Long on 22nd March 2011 at 13:10
It's the view from my house on Warrington Road, North of Cemetery Road and the Branch - the Cemetery is the former Ince UDC's, which opens onto Warrington Road, having Cemetery Road as its southern boundary. The wall in the foreground is actually the base of the back wall to the old St Mary's (or Hall of Ince) School Annexe - my Vicarage is built on the site of the main building. The West Coast Main Line runs behind the wall on the far side of the cemetery. Wigan Cemetery, Lower Ince, lies on the other side of the railway.

I have fond memories from my childhood of sitting on a bench in Wigan Cemetery and watching the steam trains as they passed by between the two cemeteries . If we were lucky, we would get a wave from the engine driver.
That line must have closed many years ago and a small part of me even thinks I may have imagined it but I don't really think so.
No-matter where our mother took us, i.e. Southport, Haigh Hall etc, I was at my happiest in that cemetary, looking at all the flowers, listening to the song birds and waiting for a train to come along. Bliss!
