Nice...but.
It could be anywhere in Britain.
We need to 'see' the Wigan connection.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 14th July 2012 at 02:10
Mick, you`ve got me guessing whereabouts this is. Is it West of Wigan?. Very unusual to see an all female group of ramblers - all got trousers on !!
The name reminds me of that well known phrase "Home James and don`t spare the hosses".
Like the drinking mugs.
Maggie will enjoy this P-a-D.

Good pic., mick.All ready for walk.


Comment by Scholes Malc on 14th July 2012 at 07:13
not the Wigan flight Mick - can't place it - where is it? - I think its up your way


Comment by Mick on 14th July 2012 at 09:51
This photo as ended up with the wrong title it should have been, A Group of Women Ramblers at Appley Bridge locks.

Here is a video of the same rambling women watching the boats.

So it`s Appley lock No.91 Mick, which is West of Wigan as I suspected.
As rambling groups go it was very small. Did you enquire where these ramblers had come from and where they were going?


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 14th July 2012 at 18:17
I can`t follow your line of moaning Gary. You keep referring to bird photo`s in your comments and all of the bird photo`s could be taken anywhere.
This is the Leeds and Liverpool canal, so can`t possibly be anywhere.


Comment by Mick on 14th July 2012 at 21:10
Yes Ernest your right it was west of Wigan.

I didnt ask the rambling women where they had come from but they did head off towards Parbold.


Comment by Jean Davies on 15th July 2012 at 08:22
To Ernest Pyke you need to get your eyes tested. There is a bloke in the party. As well as the pole comment earlier in the week. Wearing trousers on a ramble is in my opinion sensible attire. You even spelt horses incorrectly.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 15th July 2012 at 23:01
Jean Davies, the ramblers are all female as Mick says. The chap is working on the lock and is from the narrowboat.
Hope that your eyes are as good as mine when you are 84.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 16th July 2012 at 03:19
Jean Davies, I deliberately typed hosses.
Hoss is cowboy slang for horse.

this is my boat on me and my dads boat trip going back home to a small place called norbury junction


Comment by trish booth on 18th July 2012 at 15:47
Yes it is Appley locks! The boats in the lock ate James and Abraham. We were on our way back from Liverpool and heading towards the Wigan flight! Glad you like the cups!
