It is good to see that Wigan is maintaining a lot of greenery, the canopy is very important. This shot tested my brain cells.

look at that stormy sky!


Comment by Mick on 21st May 2014 at 07:07
Im sure thats me waiting with my bike at the pelicon crossing on Harrogate st and River way


Comment by Maureen on 21st May 2014 at 09:42
That is one brilliant shot Dan..everything is so clear.


Comment by A.W. on 21st May 2014 at 12:16
an excellent photograph, the downside is it could be anywhere on Earth.


Comment by Lizziedownunder on 21st May 2014 at 12:18
Nice to see these places from so far away in the world.... Thank you Dan.... Cheers!!!


Comment by Linda on 21st May 2014 at 18:38
What a grey day! Excellent photo, Dan.

A.W. It could be anywhere on Earth but Wiganers should know where it is. There's not just Haigh Hall to see in Wigan.


Comment by Rev David Long on 21st May 2014 at 20:55
Everything is very clear, as you say Maureen - including the green mould on the newly-fitted panels on the Scholes flats. Was creating a vertical garden in the design brief for the job?


Comment by Gem on 21st May 2014 at 22:08
those panels were fitted 5 years ago, so hardly new Rev....they are currently testing new renders on the side of one. Wonder if the matching Premier Inn will go the same way?


Comment by Robin Leigh on 22nd May 2014 at 00:59
Nice photo. Green is to be appreciated whether on trees or buildings. A generation ago it was practically non-existent near the town centre.


Comment by Garry on 22nd May 2014 at 08:26
A.W. if you don't think that photo has been taken on River Way, you don't know Wigan.
