A nice natural shot of the pub seen by everybody who enter Wigan from the A49 north.


Comment by Michael on 22nd April 2012 at 05:52
A beautiful pub, though I haven't been in it since the days of George and Mary Waterhouse. Let's hope it survives!


Comment by peterp on 22nd April 2012 at 06:34
nice to see the flowers in bloom.


Comment by Ellen on 22nd April 2012 at 08:11
Nice picture.Nice spring flowers.

....Had hoped for something a little more "green" for Earth Day--or don't you celebrate Earth Day on the eastern shores of the "pond"?

Lovely Thomas, Why is the Hospitl A&E sign on the lamp post in red when they were always blue.


Comment by burtspieeater on 22nd April 2012 at 09:14
Great photo. The Red hospital sign indicates it has an "Accident and Emergencies" department.


Comment by Mick on 22nd April 2012 at 09:20
Garry all out street signs are colour coded, the normal ones are green and white and the motorways are blue and white.

So that way if you see big directional sign in green and white and just one little square of blue with a number in it you know that the route towards a motorway.

The red on the hospital sign means blood.

Yourphoto has an appropriate Sunday morning atmosphere,Tommy.

That traffic island is the only one I know of, where drivers, when on the island, don't have the 'Right of Way'


Comment by mike on 22nd April 2012 at 10:22

Where on Wigan World can i find the old photograph of the 'Cherries' and the discussion that ensued as to whether or not it is the same building today as it was yesteryear?


Comment by linda on 22nd April 2012 at 12:10
Years ago my youngest son always called it the Sherry Gardens.


Comment by peterp on 22nd April 2012 at 13:40

Spent many a happy hour in there in the 80's.


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 22nd April 2012 at 23:20
Memories,memories,memories.
We used to go carol singing where the posh houses were then.We always got more money from there!It was a good walk from our house....but worth it !Thanks for the picture.
