New bridge over the yellow brook.

Trouble with bridges is that you can soon get lost when you cross them.

I remember I was once deep in a Malaysian rain forest and went across a old bridge and ended up lost, missis went mad


Comment by Alan on 12th November 2014 at 09:05
It's not the bridge's fault Mick, it's you.


Comment by Kenee on 12th November 2014 at 10:08
"The Yellow Brook"
is it a tributary of The Yellow River?


Comment by Jonno on 12th November 2014 at 10:42
Another non-comment from you again Mick regarding the particular subject on view. It's a pleasant enough photo David, but it doesn't do a lot for me, sorry.


Comment by Mick on 12th November 2014 at 15:57
Jonno the photo might not do a lot for you because of your boring narrow mind
But like I have said its reminded me of getting lost when I crossed a little wooden bridge.


Comment by Mick on 12th November 2014 at 16:14
BTW way Jonno the bridge and the crossing point of the yellow brook is a historical part of Wigan and must hold so many memories of all Wiganers


Comment by Eddiep on 12th November 2014 at 17:30
Mick, go back to the doctor the tablets are not working.


Comment by Jonno on 12th November 2014 at 17:35
Mick i dont have a narrow and boring mind, at least i commented on Davids photo. Why didn't you give the history etc in your original post instead of tales of your 'travels'. It would appear to me that you can give it but not take it.


Comment by Karen on 12th November 2014 at 17:50
Try again (crash). Jonno , I personally did not find Mick's first contribution a non comment as you suggest, each to their own.
Mick, I,ve never heard of yellow brook and would welcome insight and the history you mention.
Thanks David. Love the different angles


Comment by June on 12th November 2014 at 18:33
As per Jonno? Eddiep .. Pointless!!


Comment by Garry on 12th November 2014 at 18:37
Nowt wrong with Mick's comments.
Its Jonno who wants to stare things up.


Comment by Mick on 12th November 2014 at 18:44
Jonno go back to where you have come from Ive spent far to much time answering you.


Comment by Jonno on 12th November 2014 at 19:23
Yes i've guessed right Mick, you like to run the show dont you? I haven't been anywhere by the way, i've been reading your inane comments for a long time now before deciding to get involved, as you know, i am not on my own regarding your comments. I'll leave you alone for today.


Comment by Ellen on 12th November 2014 at 20:07
Now, now boys;No quarreling on photo a day!
Personally,I liked this contribution.
Thanks, David.


Comment by Mavis on 12th November 2014 at 20:44
Karen I think the brook was so called because it ran from the dye works and the water carried the dye colour which was usually a mucky mustard colour and so called yellow brook, I played down there in the 50,s, it is so different now, there was another photo on last week someone talked about the devils cavern it was actually called the devils cave when I was little and only a few minutes walk from the bridge. So many memories when I look at these photos well done they are great.


Comment by Mick on 12th November 2014 at 21:33
Mavis was it not called yellow because of the iron ore that was coming out of the coal mines.
Up here in sunny Shevy we have a brook called calico because its yellow and flows from a old coal mine.


Comment by Jonno on 13th November 2014 at 00:38
Stare Garry, do you mean stir? No i dont, just saying what other people think.


Comment by Mick on 13th November 2014 at 09:26
And who are the other people who are doing the thinking and where do they gather jonno mmmmm


Comment by A.W. on 13th November 2014 at 09:55
Nice to see a photo of Dean Wood, I have not been there for many years.


Comment by Jonno on 13th November 2014 at 10:42
Just refer to last Sundays photo Mick, you'll see what i mean.


Comment by Roy on 13th November 2014 at 11:21
Dean Wood A.W. ?


Comment by David on 13th November 2014 at 12:06
I always thought the name was because of the yellow ochre or hydrated iron oxide which came from the colliery - can't think of the name - across the railway line.


Comment by Karen on 13th November 2014 at 16:20
Thanks Mavis. Is this in Dean Wood? Yellow Brook, Devils Cavern, add a few elves , fairies and witches and there's a book there.


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 13th November 2014 at 16:38
Oops a daisy.......best not to comment at all!


Comment by Kal on 13th November 2014 at 18:25
Jean F, ?


Comment by Bren on 14th November 2014 at 07:05
This is BOTTLING WOOD...not DEAN WOOD..I walk over this bridge every day....also it was the iron ore that made it run yellow.


Comment by Karen on 14th November 2014 at 15:56
Thanks Bren.


Comment by haha on 14th November 2014 at 16:33

Comment by Jim on 4th February 2015 at 16:20
