Lovely view Mick, I did some of my courting around there.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 25th June 2013 at 03:19
Lovely Mick....from one of your videos I think....now I can put it in my album....cheers!!


Comment by Garry on 25th June 2013 at 05:40
What on earth has this got to do with Wigan World? Where the Wigan connection?


Comment by Helen on 25th June 2013 at 08:02
Gary, I suppose it has a place on WW because it must near Wigan. Wiganners go there. I went there myself as a child.

Look on the bright side, think how lucky you are to have such a nice place to visit.


Comment by pat on 25th June 2013 at 08:16
That's quite a climb to the top, but well worth the views when you get there. really enjoyable. Good Photo.


Comment by rolo69 on 25th June 2013 at 08:29
What have KR, Lizzie down under and Garry all got in common?


Comment by Ron D on 25th June 2013 at 08:42
Allot of Wiganer's have spent allot of time there ,So why not Garry?
Nice pick.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 25th June 2013 at 09:09
Garry; there`s been many a P-a-D taken from Wigan looking towards Winter Hill.
Where were you looking towards when taking this photo, Mick?
Brian decides what photo to put on P-a-D.


Comment by maggie on 25th June 2013 at 09:42
Again, some very happy memories of walks to this place. it belongs on this site because it makes so many of us happy to see it again - Wiganers that is.


Comment by Mick on 25th June 2013 at 10:07

Ernest Im looking towards Belmont that Belmont church just to the right of the centre.

And for the Wigan only brigade, the lad on the photo is a Wiganer and I was sucking a Uncle Joes Mint Ball as I took the photo.


Comment by Dave Marsh on 25th June 2013 at 11:56
I always feel I have arrived home when Winter Hill comes into view.


Comment by Ray Dwyer on 25th June 2013 at 13:13
Brill picture Mick.
It's a contentious point, does every picture on P-A-D have to be in Wigan? or is it where Wigginers spend their leisure time?.
You can see the wind turbine farm on Scout moor in the distance. Now theres another contentious issue.


Comment by Curious. on 25th June 2013 at 14:39
Ok! rolo 69, you have my attention, what do they have in common?


Comment by sanibelfred on 25th June 2013 at 16:37
Maggie. answer my question about junction terrace


Comment by Kath Pressey on 25th June 2013 at 17:25
that's a great photo of a quiet summer moment. so peaceful. and it belongs on WW belongs it's a well known landmark to Wiganers.


Comment by John H on 25th June 2013 at 20:43
I love the photo, great shot. I put pic on of Blackrod scar crows last year, & was told that's Blackrod not Wigan, or words to that effect.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 25th June 2013 at 22:59
Maggie: expect you are wondering about sanibelfred`s comment at 16:37. He should have put Lizzie and is referring to last comment on 17th Jun.`13 P-a-D.
Lizzie, please look at last comment on 17th Jun.`13 P-a-D.


Comment by Ken R on 26th June 2013 at 00:07
curious, I guess Rolo69 is going to keep us guessing???


Comment by Lizzie down under on 26th June 2013 at 00:22
Thank you Ernest for the prompt.....I answer to Fred's post about Junction Terrace Lower Ince......directly outside my grandparent's house at no.22 was a station......the steam trains stopped at the station and I guess let all the steam out with such a racket that it made such an impression on me I have never forgotten it.....yes maybe what you call ghost trains went through there but there were definitely noisy steam trains that stopped at the station.....and don't get me started on ghosts........cheers!!!


Comment by rolo69 on 26th June 2013 at 10:10
When I posted they were the first and the only three names.They're all from Wigan like the rest of us.My wife and I got engaged to be married on Winter Hill,when she saw the photo yesterday she was more than pleased thanks to Wigan World and Mick Byrne. Garry this site is about Wigan World, not just about Wigan,people from all over the world log on to it.Now that said, what did ALL the people from Wigan have in common with Winter Hill??? yes we all got out T.V. signal from the top of it.


Comment by Garry on 26th June 2013 at 16:32
Not me rolo69, I have Sky TV.


Comment by rolo69 on 26th June 2013 at 17:29
I said GOT Garry, not GET.


Comment by Ken R on 27th June 2013 at 00:06
Thanks rolo69, we all have WW, thanks to the editor, thank you.

Lost a pound lighter up here once. It's probably still there. Maybe that chap is sitting on it.
