Its a pleasure looking at that tippler on the side of Wigan Pier, I really missed WW last week. Thanks Brian for your efforts, its appreciated.


Comment by Ellen on 11th June 2012 at 00:40
Simply beautiful! A study in serenity; thanks.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 11th June 2012 at 03:31
I`m amazed by this photo Mick. Where have all the trees come from?
It`s quite awhile since I was there, in fact it was just before `The Way We Where` closed.
When was this taken?
Are there any photo`s of the original tippler?


Comment by David Fairclough on 11th June 2012 at 03:44
That is one of the best photos I have ever seen of the pier. Thanks Mick, I try to explain to friend here in Oz what Wigan Pier is, this will help.


Comment by Janice on 11th June 2012 at 06:00
That is a very nice photo Mick. Always difficult to get a sun like that. Nicely done.


Comment by Scholes Malc on 11th June 2012 at 07:57
I like that Mick - great shot


Comment by irene roberts on 11th June 2012 at 08:22
That's really special! A big thankyou to Mick and to Brian for all his hard work so that we can see these wonderful photos again.

It's already been said I know, but thank you so much for these lovely photos. I did miss this last week.

What a great photo!


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 11th June 2012 at 13:00
There are 61 photo`s of Wigan Pier in Album, Places, Wigan Pier in wiganworld. The last one is of a watercolour submitted by Rev David Long. How`s your retirement doing Rev.David? I`ve missed your photo`s and comments.
Compare photo 14552 on left hand side, 2nd row down on page 3 with Mick`s photo.
There are 3 photo`s 16513 to 16515 on 4th row down on page 3 showing demolition of the original tippler, but can`t see much of it !!


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 11th June 2012 at 13:27
Correction to my last comment - the demolition photo`s are on 3rd row down on page 3.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 11th June 2012 at 13:37
There`s the pathe film of the wigan pier demolition on :-

Ernie it was taken a couple of years ago.

BTW my missis was sat next to a owd man in the doctors this morning who made her smile.
I said did you see his name come up on the screen and she said it was somebody called Ernest Pyke.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 11th June 2012 at 14:20
Now I know while I cried all the time that I was being christened in Wigan Parish Church in 1928. They were demolishing Wigan Pier !!!


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 11th June 2012 at 14:44
Yes Mick, I saw my lady doctor this morning but I remember a young lady sitting beside me !!
`The Way We Were` closed on Thurs.20th Dec.2007 refer :-
