Not long now, Mick, before the leaves turn brown. The nights are drawing in too, worse luck!


Comment by Anne on 25th August 2013 at 09:57
That is a photo I would be pleased to show to any non Wiganer.
Excellent stuff.

Well done - a photo that shows the better side of Wigan. Lovely, thank you x


Comment by Ron D on 25th August 2013 at 10:36
Nice one Mick. Nicely framed .a pleasant picture. Good.


Comment by Maureen on 25th August 2013 at 15:40
I've always thought that to have lived there years ago must have been lovely..I would love to see a photo of the time when those offices were houses,I bet they were very grand.


Comment by Ellen on 25th August 2013 at 16:37
.....Or, for that matter, many other places around the world!


Comment by Ellen on 25th August 2013 at 16:39
A really pleasant picture. Good to see on a beautiful Sunday, after church. This could not be in North America, the traffic is on the "wrong"side of the road!


Comment by Derek Platt on 25th August 2013 at 16:43
I agree with every statement, nothing negative about this shot. Mind you, I wonder when the council will start bulldozing these wonderful old houses(offices) down.

Lots of detail about Bridgeman Terrace at :-

See Character Area 4: Bridgeman Terrace.

I started my driving test from the spot where the blue car, on the right, is parked. The driving test centre used to be in an office in Bridgeman Terrace.

Comment by Mick on 25th August 2013 at 22:42
I wonder how many trees there are in Bridgeman Terrace.

Garry, Photo was took a couple of weeks ago so dead leaves taht you can see must be hedge clippings


Comment by Ellen on 26th August 2013 at 00:07
Lizzie, just because I'm curious;how long have you been ,like me, an ex-pat?


Comment by Lizzie down under on 26th August 2013 at 13:14
Ellen...Hello...February 2014 I will have been here in Adelaide for 50 years....loved every minute of it....Great place to bring up a family.....part of my heart will always be in Wigan though.....cheers!!!

Much safer driving on the left hand side of the road - Proven fact. Especially as most people are right handed and drive manual cars. (Unless you're left handed of course!)

Comment by Ellen on 26th August 2013 at 19:52
Hi Lizzie. You've been away a little longer than I have. We left in October 1966. Still miss England and particularly Wigan, even though I'm a happy Canadian citizen; Wigan (and Upholland) will always be "home" to me!


Comment by Robin Leigh on 27th August 2013 at 17:31
Not sure how, after 60 years, but this is what it looked like when I walked to WGS in '54-ish.
