OMG....Rose Cottage is what hospital staff call the mortuary !


Comment by Mick on 22nd March 2014 at 06:37
When Im peddling my bike up Hall lane I always wonder who lives in houses like these.


Comment by Helen on 22nd March 2014 at 08:21
Mick, probably someone who cares about living in an old/older house.
Bet a house like that sells for less in the Wigan area than houses in Norfolk where I live...then you would wonder who lives in houses like that & where the money comes from!
Nice photo, nice house.


Comment by Roy on 22nd March 2014 at 09:59
Helen, money or not, posh detatched in a nice countryside position or back to back terrace, they still cant escape Wigans industrial heritage, SUBSIDENCE!!


Comment by Harry K on 22nd March 2014 at 10:19
Is that David Marue who is sending the photos in.


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 22nd March 2014 at 10:41
Whatever the house is ,or was, its beautiful along with its surroundings. Perhaps its just us "oldies" that prefer this to the "new build"


Comment by Cyril on 22nd March 2014 at 10:48
Don't know if it is still owned by the Hampson's, they live in the large Haigh Cottage further over to the left, it was a tied cottage and let out to the factory supervisor of the malt works at Leyland Mill, this was at the old Haigh Foundry bottom of the hill. The Hampson's owned a lot of the properties around there.

David; How far is this house from Hindley Hall Golf Club?
Mick; Can you pedal all the way up Hall Lane?
Helen; Just looked at Sheringham railway website:-
http://webcams.nnrailway.co.uk/ Weather nice and sunny as here in Shevington.
Re Bren and Maureen`s comments on yesterday P-a-D; Thanks for your concern.


Comment by dave johnson on 22nd March 2014 at 11:38
Ernest, about three miles because it is a different Hall Lane.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 22nd March 2014 at 12:03
Mick; Re my earlier comment, amend Hall Lane to Ladies Lane.
Jean; Your comment on yesterday`s P-a-D wasn`t there when I posted my comment on here. Thanks for your concern also.


Comment by Mick on 22nd March 2014 at 18:54
Ernest, Last year I could get up but had to stop just around the first bend after the hill and have a rest but since then Ive lost 3 stone and now can get all the way up to the canal bridge in the plantations before stopping.


Comment by Ellen on 22nd March 2014 at 20:09
Jean, I totally agree with you about this house and surroundings! Maybe that's because I live in a house that is well over 100 years old and is probably one of the oldest, if not the oldest in our town! (not that it's posh,but we like it!)


Comment by Helen on 23rd March 2014 at 08:01
Nice & sunny again in Sheringham Ernest !
