Is this what we fished in the 50's and 60's and knew as Harry Hortons Lodge?


Comment by Jonno on 15th February 2015 at 01:01
Don't think so Fred, Houghtons/ Hortons lodge was on the opposite side of the road towards Beech Hill.


Comment by Aubrey on 15th February 2015 at 08:28
Nice one, Mick, a pleasant scene.


Comment by kath on 15th February 2015 at 09:23
we used to hang out around there. We called it the Lodge. Is this the same place? I don't remember the trees back then

Another belter Mick.


Comment by Aubrey on 15th February 2015 at 11:12
Isn't this Scot Lane New Pond, either made or enlarged when Scot Lane was extended to Woodhouse Drive? I have never been an angler but Wigan Anglers fish this pond.

Its the figure of eight this pond mick..!


Comment by Cyril on 15th February 2015 at 16:18
Wasn't this pond was made to replace the one that was filled in when the road was built going under the railway, the stream that meanders down from Kitt Green alongside Lancaster Road and now goes through a culvert under the industrial estate runs into it.

There was some old demolished brick kilns around there at one time, and during the 1960s folks used to dump all sorts of rubbish there, it was a right eyesore then, a whole lot better now though.
