Orrell Post from my Back Door.

I was born and brought up at Orrell Post, and lived there for thirty five years. However, I don't recognise anything on the photo.
What is the name of that road and in which direction is the camera facing ?


Comment by Maggie on 28th March 2012 at 08:11
What is the door number to your house, and what time will you be out?


Comment by Jamie on 28th March 2012 at 08:28
The road is school lane, photo taken from Upholland facing towards Wigan. ( miniature effect added in camera!)


Comment by maggie on 28th March 2012 at 09:47
yet again, this is the real maggie. To the person using my name, grow up, especially making daft jokes like this.


Comment by dirty harry on 28th March 2012 at 12:24

Maggie (The real? one):D
Iapologise profusely, I hadn't realised you had copyrighted the name. I shall send you a cheque as soon as I get your solicitors letter.


Comment by David on 28th March 2012 at 16:59
Maggie, you have spoiled it; shoudn't that should be a semi-colan after the 'profusely.'


Comment by Jimmy on 28th March 2012 at 17:47
This is where School Lane meets Orrell Road, the daffodils on the right are about 100 yards before the Stag.


Comment by Orrelite on 28th March 2012 at 17:49
little bit of sanity is called for . The road is Orrell Road the direction sign ,white,is on the appraoch to Orrell Post Left is Gathurst road and turn right is Moor road, you can see what is now the car wash at the garage


Comment by Cyril on 28th March 2012 at 19:39
Has the culinary herb nursery gone and now been built on?


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 28th March 2012 at 20:54
Why has Jamie got such negative comments?What`s wrong with his picture ...poor lad.


Comment by alan on 28th March 2012 at 22:18
Thanks for the orientation. I recognise it now. I left Orrell Post in 1973 so I think I can be forgiven for being a bit confused !


Comment by Ellen on 29th March 2012 at 02:46
More thanks for the orientation. I left the area in 1966, and despite travelling there frequently during the 20-plus years before that, this picture looked completely foreign to me!


Comment by D.W. on 30th March 2012 at 12:00
Jamie, I reckon you must live somewhere near Alma Hill UpHolland to get this view of Orrell Road.
