That's the Lancashire I remember, wonderful photo. It would be nice to take a walk down that track.

So is mine, Mick - I can see the hill from our house.
There are great views to be had from there, especially on clearer days.
Comment by Mick on 14th October 2014 at 09:34
Yes Rev there are some great view if you go up when the weather is clear.
But I bet there many a Wiganer who have never been up there because you cant drive a car up to it.
There a video here that I made up there thats shows a bit of the old windmill.

My bungalow is also on there, Mick.
Just watched, on a PC in Chorley library, your video taken on Harrock Hill. What`s that strange circular iron object with a slot in top near the end?
I`ve only been on the main road past this hill. Wasn`t there a prison nearby years ago?

Rev David, did you take a picture of Harrock Hall? Always loved the fact that we have a saint who was born there(John Rigby).
Comment by Mick on 14th October 2014 at 16:43
Bradshaw Girl Ive just put some photo on the Forum of Harrock Hall and Hill.
Ernest the strange circular iron object is a pheasant feeder, I think they can give it nudge and some feed drops out at the bottom.

Thanks Mick. A pheasant feeder eh! Never would have got that in a million years! Any idea`s on the prison that I think used to be nearby Harrock Hill?
Comment by Mick on 14th October 2014 at 22:09
Never heard of a prison being up there Ernest
