Great photo - nice to see the union flag too.


Comment by Neil Cain on 22nd August 2012 at 15:00
Thanks to everyone for the nice comments. Wigan has many plus points that alot of people are ignorant of.


Comment by irene roberts on 22nd August 2012 at 15:38
Wigan in Bloom.....beautiful! You should have taken it at 2.50.pm, Neil, then we could have echoed Rupert Brooke's "Grantchester"..."Stands the church clock at ten to three...And are there meat pies still for tea?"!


Comment by girty harry on 22nd August 2012 at 17:01
"yes" "yes" its nice if you like that sort of thing. it just needs the thomas cook sign taking down because my eye's are drawn towards it .


Comment by irene roberts on 22nd August 2012 at 18:24
I don't suppose the photographer had much choice about the Thomas Cook sign...and anyway, the sign is clean and bright and, modern though it is, it is part and parcel of our beautiful, historic Market Place.I think the photograph is perfectly proportioned. It makes me feel proud of Wigan.

GIRTY Harry... are you his sister maybe?????


Comment by tricia on 22nd August 2012 at 19:11
And after,ere the night is born
Do hares come out about the corn
Oh is the water sweet and cool
Gentle and brown above the pool?
And laughs the Immortal river still
Under the mill, under the mill?

By the way, to me, it will always be the UNION JACK!!!


Comment by flaggy delf on 22nd August 2012 at 19:14
It just wants the g taken out and a d put in. My eye is drawn to it.


Comment by Neil Cain on 22nd August 2012 at 19:18
you should have seen the ruddy great blue securicor type van ruining the lovely shot the other way girty


Comment by dirty harry on 22nd August 2012 at 20:48
its still dirty harry my finger slip't but thanks to all of the eagle eyed viewers it wont happen again


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 22nd August 2012 at 21:05
Beautiful,coiourful picture Neil.




Like your little comment Tricia for Girty .!!!He`ll never live it down....bless !


Comment by irene roberts on 22nd August 2012 at 21:13
Well said, Flaggy! Tricia, I love the rhyme; what lovely. gentle words, And though not everyone approves, it will always be The Union Jack to me too, although I am well aware of when it should be called The Union Flag. As long as we respect and honour it, I don't see that it matters. Harry, I have seen Neil's photo taken from the other angle, and believe me, the Thomas Cook sign is a far more acceptable sight than the great big securicor van that was a blot on the horizon! He waited ages for it to move but time was pressing and he had to take the view above. I, for one, love it! Well done, Neil.


Comment by flaggy delf on 23rd August 2012 at 08:32
wont! won't come on D.H


Comment by tricia on 23rd August 2012 at 08:56
Hi Irene
It has always been one of my favourites too. Liked the meat pie bit!Such a pity he died so young.
Thank you , Jean, could not resist it!


Comment by irene roberts on 23rd August 2012 at 09:47
Tricia, although Neil was born in London he is a Wiganer through and through, and loves Wigan, its people and its love of pies! His Dad was from Ince and when I was a little girl his Grandad had a pie-shop there with the best pies for miles around, hence my "meat pies" quote.
