Interesting photo Mick. What is the far horizon, do you know??


Comment by Kal on 2nd December 2014 at 01:17
Really like this one Mick. Intelligent shot. Thank you.


Comment by Helen on 2nd December 2014 at 06:31
Unusual shot. All the crossing straight lines, wires, twigs, concrete, tree trunks & even another straight road (?) in the far distance....almost monochrome, as I said unusual.


Comment by kath on 2nd December 2014 at 08:57
I don't know where this is but I love the picture!


Comment by maggie. on 2nd December 2014 at 09:31
is that Winter Hill on the horizon?


Comment by cullie on 2nd December 2014 at 09:49
the old twenty bridges looking over toward rivvy .


Comment by Peter Schofield on 2nd December 2014 at 09:52
Looking at the photograph it appears to me to be the Viaduct that carries the M6 Motorway over the Douglas Valley. Very unusual shot but interesting


Comment by Giovanni on 2nd December 2014 at 10:06
So thats Rivington Pike in the distance! Been there a few times for dances and socials. And Winter Hill was early transmission site for TV.


Comment by stan dasher on 2nd December 2014 at 11:57
looks like it was viewed off wigan lane near boars head.


Comment by Craven on 2nd December 2014 at 18:14
Good one Mick.


Comment by Garry on 2nd December 2014 at 18:40
That is looking over Darwin and not Rivington which is to the right.


Comment by Roy on 2nd December 2014 at 20:09
Garry, Mick must have a brilliant camera, Darwin is in Australia, you meant Darwen didn't you? Just having a bit of fun Garry, you got the two muxed ip. Well Mick where DID you take this interesting photo? i'm with Stan, it has to be on or around Wigan Lane


Comment by Mick on 2nd December 2014 at 22:06
It was taken from the grass verge opposite Walter Scott Ave


Comment by Fred Downunder on 3rd December 2014 at 01:28
Nothing like this in Darwin


Comment by Garry on 3rd December 2014 at 10:41
Thanks Roy..Darwen in Lancshire.
It's an age thing.


Comment by Alan on 3rd December 2014 at 15:49
Best time of year to take this pic Mick, no leafs on trees.


Comment by Garry on 3rd December 2014 at 16:21
Lancashire...dear dear my spelling.


Comment by Roy on 4th December 2014 at 00:06
You're excused Garry, as you said it's your age.


Comment by Phil Whitehead on 8th December 2014 at 00:39
Is it possible to cross that Viaduct on foot?


Comment by Roy on 15th December 2014 at 17:28
No Phil it's gated at each end.


Comment by Ann on 17th December 2014 at 17:46
Roy, safety reasons? I would have thought Mick, the Rev, Aubrey and Albert could have given we ignorant people greater insight . Where did it go or connect to? Is now dangerous so sealed off. Does anyone know more about this viaduct? Just interested about some now left to decay that once was
