Timber!
 Timber!   by Brian  (iPhone 4)
Yesterdays high winds blew a tree down in Swinley Road, Wigan.

Taxi"""" Well that's on the spot photography well captured Brian.
Poor tree looks like it lost all its berries


Comment by Des on 8th December 2011 at 07:15
Well...its fallen on a German car so that's ok. Too many imported cars on Britains roads.


Comment by Rev David Long on 8th December 2011 at 08:37
Doubtless the rest of the trees will now be taken down to prevent it happening again. But great reportage pic.

(CRASH CAB) Well spotted Brian.
Looks it missed the house. H.

Used to live further up there at one time, the car that has been hit will be outside houses 63 and 65. In autumn years ago flocks of migrating Starlings would descend on those trees gorging themselves on the berries, there's quite a few left on that tree so happen not as many birds come along now.

Mmm, shades of Basil Fawlty me thinks

Des, What cars are British these days?


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 8th December 2011 at 20:42
Ouch! Could have been nasty.I was born in Swinley road a lot of years ago !!!


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 8th December 2011 at 20:50
Just remembered... I was born on swinley lane not on swinley road.....Its an age thing you know !!


Comment by Des on 8th December 2011 at 22:56
Exactly, Colin. If us Brits had been more patriotic in the past few years and bought British, our roads wouldn't be infested with imports.
There was nowt wrong with Rover cars. My 800 has covered 235,000 miles without a hitch.
At least some Jap firms build in Britain and Jags are still basically British.


Comment by michael / australia on 10th December 2011 at 04:19
used to buy British Cars, but to be frank they cost to much to maintain,while the Jap cars I bought overhere just keep going with the regular servicing,its no wonder the British lost their export markets.Had a yank 4WD the last 10 yearS and only had to change the oils ISUSU MADE IN THE USA.Sold overhere by General Motors.

rover 800 series was co developed by honda. Two models having honda engines the 825 and the 827. The honda legend was very similar
