We've stood there many a times waiting for the tractor. Nice photo

Whatever happened to the old tractors that ferried people up and down to the Hall? Cost cutting?

that is a daft idea Mick

Haigh Hall, Plantations, For God's sake find a different photographic theme. I didn't think it possible to continue to flog a location to death, more than it already has been, obviously I was wrong!

Should be infirmary car park without a doubt, there are acres and acres of land for people to walk and enjoy, this would not spoil anyones pleasure.

LDB its not such a daft idea, it would only need a few shrubs cutting down and some leveling off.
Its surprising how much spare land is there on the left and right of the gates.

I agree with Syd

Sorry Mick, sounds absolutely ridiculous to me. Have you thought this through?

I agree with Mick. Make some of it a Car Park for the Hospital.

Mick, try walking or getting the bus to the infirmary.

P.a.d is so interesting and fun, as is Wiganworld. I greatly enjoy it, thank you to all.

What is the history behind this wonderful arch. Is it Victorian/Edwardian? Can someone enlighten me to its history and why it was built in the first place,
