Nice stop the action shot. Hope he got around safely. Fished in Carr Mill years ago.


Comment by Garry on 3rd June 2014 at 07:06
Carr Mill, that's St Helens.


Comment by Harry C. on 3rd June 2014 at 07:09
Nice action shot! but I prefer sailboats.


Comment by Mick on 3rd June 2014 at 07:23
Carr Mill Dam that not in Wigan

I remember sending in some cracking photos taken at Birkacre,just the other side of Coppull for Photo of the Day and was asked by the then administrators, where was they taken I said Coppull and they never made it onto Photo of the Day.

It looks like the new administration are more easy going about where photo are taken


Comment by Fred Mason on 3rd June 2014 at 08:32
May be taken in St Helen's but the driver is from Wigan.

Fantastic photo, Edward. Well done.


Comment by Roy on 3rd June 2014 at 10:21
St Helens is the very LAST place we should be showing on WW P-a-D, for once i agree with Garry,lol.


Comment by Barry C on 3rd June 2014 at 11:42

Comment by Eddie on 3rd June 2014 at 12:20

Comment by Garry on 3rd June 2014 at 15:32
Well said Joe, clap clap. Eddie, look at my comment at 7:06.

What's wrong with you lot, Have you all been taking TONKER tablets?
Nice action shot but a wider panorama would have given a better aspect.


Comment by Harry C. on 3rd June 2014 at 19:16
4 miles per hour limit on the canal Joe.


Comment by Garry on 3rd June 2014 at 22:17
Anything to do with water is boring, sail boats, speed boats or fishing.


Comment by Roy on 4th June 2014 at 08:48
Eddie, you're obviously not a Wigan Warriors supporter.I wouldn't be seen dead there, as the old saying goes, enough said.
