What area/street is this.


Comment by Roy on 4th July 2012 at 00:04
If it wasn,t serious it would be funny. Terrible situation, glad i live on a hill.


Comment by Andy on 4th July 2012 at 00:04

Comment by Phil Whitehead on 4th July 2012 at 00:12

Great photo Mike.

Hello Mike, Going back quite a few years, when pits, mills. and factories in the Wigan area were working, the weather for `Wakes` week, at the beginning of July, was frequently wet.
The owners of the indoor amusements in Blackpool were happy !!

At least the kids are enjoying their waterfront property. My brother used to live in an adjoining street. Windermere Road. Wigan must have had a lot of rain

I bet the insurance companies are firstly having to pay out but then rubbing their hands when premiums for everybody have to go up?Feel sorry for the people who have flood damage


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 4th July 2012 at 08:40
Shouldn`t have named the Avenue after a town in the Lake District !!
Seriously though, it must be terrible to have your home flooded.


Comment by Dave Marsh on 4th July 2012 at 09:01
I have only experienced flooding on one occasion and it really is very distressing.It took ages to get rid of the smell afterwards.Good photo,Mike.


Comment by maggie on 4th July 2012 at 10:03
we have never had our house flooded, but have suffered the upset & inconvenience of it twice.I do hope the people affected are able to return to normal as quickly as possible.


Comment by Maggie K on 4th July 2012 at 18:46
OMG. Someone was quick to blow up the boat. I have not been flooded but had a water from the loft pouring through the ceiling and cascading down the stairs while I was on holiday one winter. It was awful.


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 4th July 2012 at 21:57
We recently had these floods in a small village not far away .Going through the village on the bus ,it is awful seeing all the furniture and belongings out on the pathways.Yuo can never replace personal belomgings.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 4th July 2012 at 23:52
Jean and anne21, please refer my last comment on P-a-D 1st July`12.


Comment by sally C on 18th July 2012 at 23:25
I live parallel to this street and from what I can tell I dont think any of the houses got flooded, just the road. the road about 40 yards from my house was also a foot deep on this day.


Comment by Mike Williams on 25th September 2013 at 21:46
Cheers for the comments all, i live on Rydal and gets like Rydal Water when it rains bad!
