The Union Jack was seldom seen flying at schools and houses, unlike the American Flag which is flown nearly everywhere in USA.
This flag is the correct way up, refer :-
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Union_Jack
For Upside - Down Union Jacks refer :-

Is the ubiquitous traffic cone to stop that bollard from being hit again !!!

Very classical building, nice to see it hasn't been messed about with & the cobbles are intact...good photo for posterity.

One of my favorite buildings. Great pic thank you. Tom I am now living in US would you mind if I reprinted for personal use? Thank you

Nice pic Thomas!! The Aussie flag was always flown at our local primary school. I can remember how excited our kids were when they had their turns to hoist it in the morning and bring it down in the afternoon. Flags are flown in Australia with pride. We have national flags and state flags and also the Aboriginal flag, they are all flown with pride and honour. Keep them coming Thomas, cheers!!

Roy,you are quite right to chastise me regarding Aspull /Haigh ,I live in Aspull and know where the boundary is,I can only appolagise,for my faux pas,I'm sure you'll forgive me.
Brian , I would take it as a great complement,
If you reprint the picture.

Same at my daughter's primary school. Outside all lined up at assembly, the National Anthem played as the flag was hoisted - kids standing in lines for assembly. Lovely.

Thank you Tom
It will take pride of place in my living room. I very much appreciate your kindness.
