Wigan from Prospect Hill by Rev David Long (Sony SLT-A65V)
Standish Wood Lane. Landmarks from the left: Hospital chimney, St Catherine's spire, Boyswell House, Pagefield Mill in front of Scholes flats, Town Hall chimney, Parish Church, Coops building (?), then, seemingly miles away - Trencherfield Mill - then I think the towers of St James Poolstock and St Paul's Goose Green, but I can't place the chimneys.

I've now concluded that the buildings to the right of Trencherfield Mill are the Eckersley Mill buildings - not the church towers.

Ken R and Mick; I right click on photo then click `Save Picture As`, click `Save` which puts photo into `Pictures`. Right click on photo, click on `Preview` which puts phhoto in `Windows Picture Gallery`. Can then enlarge photo.
I suspect Rev David must enlarge it too.
The old Rylands Mill chimney is between St. Catharine`s spire and Wigan Parish Church.

Ernest I can ride down there on my bike and see the view for myself quicker than I can do all that right clicking.

Mick; your video `Sunday morning bike ride run` ref:-
shows a quick glimpse of the old Rylands Mill chimney.

Sorry Rev all I see is Grass in a field...The distant buildings are to far away for me to recognise...Nice picture however!

A Bolton; If you enlarge this photo as I mention in my comment at 11:56 you`ll be able to see more detail.
