Do you know Neil, I must have spent my childhood walking around fast asleep because I never ever saw this great view. It reminds me of the term look but we don't see.. Great picture Neil, even though it will trouble me why I didn't see it as well so many years ago. Great sky.


Comment by Fred Mason on 26th August 2014 at 02:50
Recognised the pic right away, Neil.

I used to play on that field and catch the bus to school where that great tree is on the right. My home was just off pic at the top of Helvellyn Rd.

Smashing photo, Neil.

Also went to school with Michael Rigby. Any relation?

Brilliant Neil, brings back so many memories. Could you wander down to Kitt Green where I spent my childhood?


Comment by kath on 26th August 2014 at 09:09
lovely photo!I can't quite get my bearings so I'll gave to look at google earth!


Comment by jud178 on 26th August 2014 at 11:25
great photo,
I lived just a bit lower down in Saddleback Road in the 50's and 6o,s great memories.


Comment by Mick on 26th August 2014 at 12:01
You can easily tell who owns there own council houses when you see the newly tiled roofs


Comment by Gerald Pilkington(Canada) on 26th August 2014 at 12:04
Jack I am also guilty of that .


Comment by christine roberts on 26th August 2014 at 12:15
Lovely photo brought back so many ,many happy memories of my childhood.Great panoramic view of the mast on winter hill.Great one Neil


Comment by Pat on 26th August 2014 at 16:39
Mick, Don,t know about Norley, but I am surprised to see how many houses in Marsh Green with solar panels on the roof. In my day the one clear sight on a roof was a bicycle tyre.


Comment by Rev David Long on 26th August 2014 at 16:54
The newly-tiled ones will be the Council's - they've done most of their stock over the past few years. Unfortunately, many of those in private hands now look scruffy next to them.


Comment by Jean on 26th August 2014 at 18:03
Are they the tightly nit communities they once where? Rev, I understand, but the Council's get it wrong big time also


Comment by Mick on 26th August 2014 at 18:27
Theres some videos here of Norley Hall

Comment by Neil Rigby on 26th August 2014 at 18:34
Fred - no relation; Bradshaws Girl - will get there when I can.


Comment by Rev David Long on 26th August 2014 at 19:42
Pat - the solar panels are also on the Council's houses. I understand the tenants derive some benefit from having them, but the bulk of the income from them offsets our taxes.
Not sure why you're picking an argument, Jean. Nobody, and no organisation, is perfect....


Comment by Fred Mason on 26th August 2014 at 21:20
Cheers, Neil...
I also look forward to photos of Kitt Green...well done you.


Comment by Alan on 26th August 2014 at 21:42
Jean's like that, Rev long. Always wants to be difficult.


Comment by Derek Callaghan on 27th August 2014 at 11:29
You're right Fred. The field Was a lot better before they decided to flatten it. All holes and ridges and hills to play cowboys and indians. I could never tire of that view either. I will e-mail you soon


Comment by Jean, on 28th August 2014 at 23:42
Rev, Puzzled by your comment 'picking an argument?' Absolutely, no organisation is perfect. I just said the Council also gets it wrong sometimes. How do you derive argument from that, that is a comment. Hi Alan, much better when someone disagrees with you, makes it far more interesting an discussion. I swear I don't consciously make an effort to be difficult, it's is just a matter of opinions, ours differ, so what's the big deal? I'm sure we will have many more tussles on P.A.D. issues. That is why it is so enjoyable to log on to. Talk to you soon Alan no doubt.. Enjoy.

The house with the grey roof and white porch I am sure a lad called Riley lived there in the late fifties. I think he went to St. John's and his name is John. Perhaps you remember him Fred but he was a couple of years younger than you I think. I seem to remember him being in my year
