Heading towards not wigan?

A nice photo Alan, it looks like it is going down hill. Another memory for me, my dad started work at Pincroft after he left school he was called up for service in the Royal Navy as a DEMS gunner (Defensibly Equipped Merchant Ship ) after the war he went back to Pincroft and stayed until he retired.

Nice photo Allan.looks a very cold and overcast day,misty also ,wonder what the man and his dog are looking at .

You dont see many factory smoking chimney now a days.


Comment by Bradshaws Girl on 12th December 2013 at 09:26
What does the Pincroft factory produce? Nice photo by the way.


Comment by kath on 12th December 2013 at 09:49
I agree Kathleen - something has caught the attention of the man and the dog. It always fascinates me how photographs capture these snippets and we never get to know the whole story.

Bradshaws girl, it used to be a textile mill, weaving, spinning etc, now it is made up of a few businesses, mainly dyeing and printing plus Andrew Porter Removals, warehouse and headquarters. Nice photo Alan but we are 'straying' a little bit from Wigan with this one.

he wouldn't keep his eyes off his route for long. it is a great photo, it is a lovely canal, and we enjoyed the parts we sailed along.

Maybe the dog saw a rabbit.Lovely relaxing photo.It looks very cold for a boat ride though.
Well done Alan.

Bradshaw girl. One of the biggest jobs at Pincroft was sanforizing ( shrinking) the big rolls of textile, a 100yard piece would be ten yards shorter after going through the machine.
