Taken on Wigan Road near Windy Arbour.

I'm more interested in the monkey tree Neil.


Comment by Derek Platt on 4th November 2014 at 04:16
well it is an arbour, which means there are ships. So why not pirate ships.


Comment by Mick on 4th November 2014 at 07:26
Im glad I dont live next door to someone who would do that.

Is it supposed to be for this Halloween madness


Comment by Fred Mason on 4th November 2014 at 08:32
Well, Shiver me timbers, Jim Lahhhddd...

Interesting photo, Neil. Any further information on this flag?


Comment by owd bob on 4th November 2014 at 08:33
Did Jolly Roger do it ?


Comment by Anne on 4th November 2014 at 08:54
Nice clear sharp picture.


Comment by Bradshaws Girl on 4th November 2014 at 08:56
Mick, the property in question always has a flag of some kind flying. They seem to change it every day.


Comment by Bob on 4th November 2014 at 08:58
Could be flying to stop the likes of mick living there he cant afford to live there anyway.


Comment by irene roberts on 4th November 2014 at 09:10
Well, shiver me timbers! A lovely photo, Neil. Love the monkey-puzzle tree.


Comment by Anne on 4th November 2014 at 09:12
Derek are you tongue in cheek or have you really got your arbour and harbour mixed up.


Comment by Giovanni on 4th November 2014 at 09:13
Somalian pirates in Wigan! I bet they operate near the Pier.
What is the town coming to?


Comment by Anne on 4th November 2014 at 11:23
Bradshaws Girl do you mean the one on Billinge road (A571) just before Merton road heading towards Windy Arbour? If so I don't think this is the same property. I think this is on Wigan road (A571) going into Billinge slightly before the boundary.


Comment by Neil Cain on 4th November 2014 at 12:20
It went through my mind it would be better near Bickershaw, then it could be 'Walk the Plank Lane'


Comment by Derek Platt on 4th November 2014 at 16:19
Anne I,ve permanently got my tongue in my cheek. I call it a sense of humour.


Comment by Giovanni on 4th November 2014 at 16:38
BradshawsGirl - Watch out for the black ISIS flag!


Comment by Bradshaws Girl on 4th November 2014 at 16:42
Anne, no not the one on Billinge Road.
As you say it is the one just over the boundary.


Comment by pat on 4th November 2014 at 16:51
An amusing photo, I like it.


Comment by Mick on 4th November 2014 at 18:02
Theres a lot of big houses putting flags up.

Theres one house in Barmskin lane Heskin that put up a lot of different nationality flags and there Frank Waring the egg man from Wrennals lane who lowers his union jack to half mast if Wigan Rugby lose a game


Comment by Giovanni on 6th November 2014 at 09:31
Mick - That flag must be permanently at half-mast then!


Comment by Jack on 7th November 2014 at 16:19
In your dreams Giovanni!!!
