A nice frosty shot! Nice to see my Health Walk Waymarkers are still out there :)


Comment by Mick on 15th January 2015 at 07:56
It always makes me wonder if these remotely located houses have wheelie because I never see any of them when Im out and about in these areas.


Comment by Helen on 15th January 2015 at 08:33
Mick, perhaps if you live somewhere like this you try to keep your wheelie bin hidden, so as not to spoil things. Wheelie bins may be a blessing to councils & refuse collectors but they are a blot on the landscape in most cases.


Comment by Alan on 15th January 2015 at 09:21
Mick, if they pay council tax like the rest of us, then yes the bin men will empty them, even in most wildly remote area they are.I bet the C/tax is a few bob.


Comment by Garry on 15th January 2015 at 09:26
You might not be there at the right time Mick. As Helen say's there out the way like mine are.


Comment by Giovanni on 15th January 2015 at 10:10
These remote properties must pay Council tax if they are within the Borough and entitled to bin collection. I imagine the refuse men knock and ask "MAY WE COLLECT AND EMPTY YOUR BIN". And if the occupiers are out leave a note for a more convenient time!! LOL
Nice shot by the way David!

Pendlebury Lane...marked on old maps of the 1840s as New Road. Like the old lamp


Comment by dirty harry on 15th January 2015 at 12:48
just has a matter of intrest dave did you go and knock on the homeowners door and ask is it ok if i take a picture of your out of the way house? if i was the homeowner and came across this picture on the internet i'd flip my lid its like a big billboard saying look thieves my home is in the countryside come and turn my gaff over .


Comment by Aubrey on 15th January 2015 at 15:05
Another great shot David. Take away those hideous t.v. aerials and sky dish and you could go back 60 or more years, especially with the gas lamp being there.


Comment by Derek Platt on 15th January 2015 at 16:57
Thank you Neil for that explanation, now I know where it is. Really good picture by the way, David.


Comment by Neil Cain on 15th January 2015 at 18:34
Not to be confused with New Road off Copperas Lane Derek


Comment by tom waterhouse on 15th January 2015 at 19:50
What a lovely country picture ,it could be the middle of summer.I don't live in Wigan now so I don't know where it is.Great picture.

Hi Neil don't know if you look back at the recent photos but after your last comment on P.A.D for 15th jan I realised that the only New Road I knew was the one off Copperas Lane. No idea where the other one is.


Comment by Neil Cain on 16th January 2015 at 19:43
Derek, this lane, Pendlebury Lane runs down to the canal from opposite the old Haigh School, between Red Rock Lodge and the golf course car park. The old 6 inch map from the 1840s calls it New Road. Perhaps when it was first laid down as a 'new road' it provided access to the canal for the haigh pits. I know there were loading docks at the foot of Sennicar Lane, the next lane along.
