A Tangled Mess
 A Tangled Mess   by Bill Eatock  (Fuji bridge camera utilising full 30X optical zoom)
Taken from the bridge in Cemetery Road, Ince facing towards Wigan. A Tangled mess of overhead wires and stanchions!

Just shows the stuff we need to make the world go around.

Lucky for us we dont notice most of it especially all those electricity pylons that are spoiling the views of the countryside.

Nice one Bill! Great how the zoom compresses the scale. Wigan Town Hall in the middle doesn't look that far away!


Comment by Dennis Forshaw on 15th November 2011 at 09:28
Amazing shot. Really puts across how messy the overhead wires are.


Comment by D. on 15th November 2011 at 10:24
This is a good unusual view of Wigan.


Comment by Cyril on 15th November 2011 at 11:22
Superb photo Bill. The water tower at Prospect Standish looks to be just a stones throw away. Glad to see that they are replacing the tower on the Municipal Buildings too, pity the original terracotta bricks from the dismantled tower were lost.

What a mess - something we don't notice. Glad we have some nice areas in Wigan.


Comment by cullie on 15th November 2011 at 17:07
its a nice shot of my work place we av to work under the knitting every day.


Comment by Frank Tunstall on 15th November 2011 at 22:04
Blimey, what a interesting photo.
Is that really the water tower at Standish in the background?


Comment by D. on 16th November 2011 at 09:46
Frank, I think it's actually the pavillion in Mesnes Park!


Comment by Dennis Forshaw on 16th November 2011 at 10:19
I matched up the tower in the background via Google Map. Hard to believe, but, as Cyril tells us, it is the water tower in Standish.


Comment by Frank Tunstall on 19th November 2011 at 16:54
They are a mess the overhead electrics. Progress I suppose?
At least it means Wigan has an intercity rail line.
As for me, I reckon they should have stuck to diesels.

I went onto the bridge where this photo was taken. What a mess those wires are! I've never noticed it before as I never really thought of looking. Good to see such photo's in order to remind us of what's around us that we don't usually know about.

I remember a great chippie near here. Not quite sure its the same place though.
