O for the life of a lonely Duck. Nice,serene.


Comment by peterp on 23rd July 2012 at 06:42
peace and quiet


Comment by Whelley Wayne on 23rd July 2012 at 07:57
Is the Crooke Hall pub any better? Called in a couple of months ago and from the oustide it looked derelict - grass overgrown, rubbish abound, benches rotten and as for kids 'play area'!
Is the nearby Rotal Oak a better stop off?


Comment by Colin Harlow on 23rd July 2012 at 08:55
Very colourful and quiet, lovely. Well done Austin.


Comment by dirty harry on 23rd July 2012 at 09:27
nice duck ( with ginger and black bean sause)and full of fish this section .


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 23rd July 2012 at 09:36
I`d like to "give the bird" to dirty harry.
"Give somebody the bird" (American & Australian very informal)is
to make a very impolite sign by raising your middle finger towards someone in order to show that you are angry with them.
This finger gesture also has two vulgar meanings, which I put in an earlier
comment, which has not been displayed on P-a-D for obvious reasons. So to see these vulgar meanings you have to look at Wikipedia.

That looks like a coot


Comment by Janice on 23rd July 2012 at 10:58
Good photo Austin - and a day when there is a bit of character in the sky instead of bland and rainy. Last time I was in the Crook Hall Pub and the Royal Oak they both left a lot to be desired. Both badly in need of a re-vamp.

Ernest when will you ever learn .


Comment by Mick on 23rd July 2012 at 14:22
All that rain as certainly greened up the trees


Comment by Whelley Wayne on 23rd July 2012 at 15:10
agreed Janice
there is not a decent pub on the canal in the Wigan area
nearest is Waters Edge at AP


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 23rd July 2012 at 16:03
john, have you seen my comment at 22:36 yesterday?


Comment by Jamse on 23rd July 2012 at 18:01
Rode along there with my son yesterday on our way to Appley Bridge and back. Really enjoyed it.


Comment by Mick on 23rd July 2012 at 20:15

Mick the Impersonator. Most of those who comment on P-a-D know that I`m a bachelor.
