Civil war re-enactment
 Civil war re-enactment   by Andrew Fishburn  (Canon EOS 6D)
Wigan Parish Church Tower back in September. Not 'bang up to date' but a great shot (Admin).

Your bang on with the comments admin.


Comment by Ken R on 10th December 2013 at 00:03
Good shot, hey, mind your eyebrows.


Comment by Chuck Turner on 10th December 2013 at 02:07
Just a flash in the pan.


Comment by Derek Platt on 10th December 2013 at 02:33
Great shot, looks like a model town from this vantage point. I recognise the bridge over troubled water pub, or whatever it,s called. I think the event was on the 28th Sept. no doubt Jim Latham will verify it cos he went into town that day.


Comment by Robin Leigh on 10th December 2013 at 03:52
Wow. Split-second timing after a 360 year wait...


Comment by kath on 10th December 2013 at 07:27
It's a view I've never seen before!


Comment by Margaret Wall on 10th December 2013 at 10:33
I didn't realise there were so many blocks of flats in the Scholes area. Am I correct in thinking the flats are in the Scholes area?
Lovely photo by the way!


Comment by Jim Latham on 10th December 2013 at 10:44
And a jolly good time was had by all. I love those town centre organised events. I think Wigan has made a good job in this respect.
Derek, sorry but you'll miss a very nice Christmas Lunch at "The Wheel" which is part of Wigan Tech. The meal is prepared, cooked and served by students. No doubt we will have a few pints afterwards in ---- you've guessed it--- The Moon under Water.
Right, back to the photo, a great shot. Wigan looks fine but does anyone know what happened to the mosaic text which referred to Our King Henry III, who granted Wigan its Charter in 1246.

Is yon mon trying to shoot a Sheppy off top o Boyswell house??


Comment by David Barker on 10th December 2013 at 14:49
A good shot of a shot Andrew, excellent timing.


Comment by Rev David Long on 10th December 2013 at 16:49
I drove past those flats in "Scholes Village" this afternoon - the newly-applied white exterior cladding is turning green with mould/ moss.


Comment by Garry on 10th December 2013 at 19:13
The gun-shot fire looks superimposed to me...


Comment by Andrew Fishburn on 10th December 2013 at 20:38
Sorry it's a little late with this photo, folks, but as it's a rather unique vantage point I thought it was worth sharing.

Gary, no superimposing here fella, just a 'proper' photo - whatever that is!
