That's an improvement from the last photo,just shows what few bad comments and an article in a local paper can do.peterp your right, I'm glad someone else as noticed that flower pot may get moved next week with a bit of luck.

Credit where credit is due.
Methinks they were shamed into doing this.....


Comment by Walt on 22nd July 2011 at 23:00
Can someone tell me where in Aspull this is ?. I left Aspull back in 1983, I was born on Crawford Ave 1947 and it looks very much like the Ave, down the bottom where there was two pit shafts, was there once a playground for the kids here.

Walt the clock and flower beds are at the bottom of Haigh Road on your your left just after the clinic facing the cenotaph.The houses in the photo is the top end of crawford ave opp the clinic.

Walt - it's in the angle between Scot Lane, which is behind the photographer, and Haigh Road. The Council houses on Crawford Avenue are visible through the trees.


Comment by Kells on 23rd July 2011 at 09:46
