Comment by kath on 20th October 2013 at 07:02
beautiful!


Comment by Ron D on 20th October 2013 at 09:46
Like it .Nice composition with good picture content.


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 20th October 2013 at 10:08
That's a nice shot.


Comment by Neil Cain on 20th October 2013 at 11:00
Thanks for the nice comments. I always assumed Mowpin Lodge was the gatehouse just across the lane from this but locals may call this Mowpin Lodge too. The capped pitshaft of New Wash Pit is buried in the trees opposite the cottages along the footpath so this may be a pit lodge.


Comment by David Barker on 20th October 2013 at 12:25
I think Warrington Anglers called it Mowpin Lodge when they dug it out and cleaned it up and put fishing peg platforms in, the one further up the lane is the carp pool,also owned by Warrington Anglers Club ,nice shot Neil plenty content.

That's lovely Neil,and would look beautiful if it was framed.


Comment by john on 20th October 2013 at 13:39
Nice one Neil , as kids we used to fish all these ponds ,this one was always clear blue water ,no fish in it .just behind wash pit cottage. the shaft you mention is indeed covered by trees on the left side of the wash pit cottage rd ,between the rd and the old line ,

Good camera work and so close to Wigan too.


Comment by Ellen on 20th October 2013 at 18:31
Lovely picture,a serene scene. I love all the various shades of green with the sky reflection in the water as a counterpoint.

Mowpin lodge is the name of the cottage at the gate, on the left going from New Springs to the hall


Comment by John H on 21st October 2013 at 01:30
Good photograph, well framed Nice shot neil


Comment by Neil Cain on 21st October 2013 at 10:35
Jont65.You get to it down the little path right by the Higher Lane bridge that goes to Aspull Moor or if you follow it to the left it goes to Haigh Church, so not quite by the windmill.
