Make the most of it. If the council have their way soon be a mass of buildings and roads.


Comment by kath on 6th March 2015 at 09:01
really lovely!


Comment by JeSuisCharlieWatson on 6th March 2015 at 10:06
If Labour or the Tories are returned to power, this land like many others will be bulldozed and homes built for the thousands of immigrants already here and ready to cross our borders.
Well, Wigan is a town of friendliness and hospitality.

Wutchie in the distance

Langate estate to the left Ken R. I think it's close to Sougher's lane, off Wigan Rd.


Comment by Janet ( FL ) on 6th March 2015 at 15:16
That was always one of my most favourite views, stood on Rose Hill looking over to Winter Hill...Having lived in the USA for 39 years now, I do miss the 'Views', there are no views here, it's all trees... Thanks Dave... If you could tell me where you were stood to take this pic, so I could picture myself there, I would appreciate it...


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 6th March 2015 at 15:55
Beautiful picture Dave.


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 6th March 2015 at 17:15
Thanks all.

I was stood at the top of the hill - to the right of the old school (Now a Nursery)


Comment by Janet ( FL ) on 6th March 2015 at 18:35
Thanks Dave, I thought that may be where you were, but wasn't positive and Thanks for going out there and putting on so many good photos for us all, ( wherever we may live ) to enjoy.... :-)

Dave (Oy) comes up trumps again . Lovely shot Dave.


Comment by Mick on 6th March 2015 at 19:40
I like the shadow in the left hand corner of the photo, and Im enjoying looking at that shape that looks like a big hen.


Comment by Tony Haslam on 7th March 2015 at 08:10

Dont hold your breath Tony!!


Comment by Robin Leigh on 9th March 2015 at 00:48
Janet (FL), which trees are you looking at? We have trees and sand too in Jax, but no hills.


Comment by Janet ( FL) on 9th March 2015 at 12:54
Robin, I live in hilly Tallahassee, with trees, lots and lots of trees, very pretty, but no views. The only place to get a nice view is to go to the top of the Capitol building...


Comment by Robin Leigh on 10th March 2015 at 03:35
At least it's not flat.. my daughter went to FSU and her daughter's there now.


Comment by Janet (FL) on 10th March 2015 at 12:16
Robin, so you have been to Tally, it is a nice place, just no views, lol.. My Daughter graduated from FSU also...
