I see a conservatory salesperson has been successful !! When they ring me about double glazing I say I`ve got everything apart from a conservatory and I don`t want one !!
Whereabouts is Winter Hill, Ron?
Would Darwen be somewhere ahead?
Another fine photo showing our green and pleasant land.


Comment by Mick on 17th June 2012 at 06:58
Upholland is the best place to see Wigan from when the weather is nice


Comment by Maureen Andrews nee McGovern on 17th June 2012 at 09:40
As pretty as a picture comes to mind Ron..a lovely shot.


Comment by Janice on 17th June 2012 at 09:41
What a lovely photo Ron. England's green and pleasant land - and it should be green after all the rain we have had!


Comment by Ken on 17th June 2012 at 10:42

Comment by Mick on 17th June 2012 at 13:12
Ernest winter hill is where the telly mast is you can just see it in between the two popular trees on the right.


Comment by Gary on 17th June 2012 at 13:15
Magic!


Comment by Roy on 17th June 2012 at 13:34
Ernest, you can just see the Winter Hill mast between the last two trees on the right. Darwen and its tower cant be seen from here it,s well over to the left.


Comment by Roy on 17th June 2012 at 13:57
Sorry Mick for our info clashing, your post wasn,t on when i sent mine.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 17th June 2012 at 14:33
Thanks Mick and Roy. Can now see the mast which I refused the opportunity to ascend - refer P-a-D 25th April at 14:00. Darwen will be more or less directly behind Winter Hill.
Mick, you raised a big smile with `Popular` as it`s `poplar`!


Comment by Ron D on 17th June 2012 at 15:10
It was taken from a patio of a friends house, the house is in an avenue just below where the old Majestic cinema was ,now a ware-house for cleaning stuff.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 17th June 2012 at 16:35
So Ron, Dean Wood golf course will be behind this property?


Comment by Ellen on 17th June 2012 at 17:08

Comment by Ron D on 17th June 2012 at 22:06
