It took me about ten seconds to get this one. Many years back (maybe 70)the houses did not have gardens, as shown, the farmers (Colliers) field sloped up to be just below the level of the kitchen windows, so it was not uncommon to have a cow look in the windows. Also that tree to the left, was just the sme when I was a lad, so how old is it??

Dukes Row Cottages, You'd think the photo was taken in Yorkshire. Very nice, Ron.


Comment by Alan on 14th April 2015 at 07:38
I think these are called town houses.


Comment by Garry on 14th April 2015 at 08:03
They are Terraced houses. Photo taken at the rear.


Comment by Giovanni on 14th April 2015 at 08:19
Nice picture Ron.
This vista belies the perception of Wigan.....cobble streets, mills and factory chimneys!


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 14th April 2015 at 09:11
Nice shot Ron.

Not sure if the link will work.

This distinctive row of houses used to be clearly visible from UpHolland on sunny days,


Comment by Aubrey on 14th April 2015 at 11:11
Weren't these cottages converted, 2 into 1 for the entire row?


Comment by britboy on 14th April 2015 at 14:23
Was that the row that had the leaning chimneys?


Comment by brian b on 14th April 2015 at 19:13
My several times great grandfather with a huge family lived in one of those, worked down the pit for his lordship.


Comment by Maurice on 14th April 2015 at 19:25
A few years ago,and old pit shaft opened up in the back garden of one of these houses,a nice shot of them.


Comment by Cyril on 14th April 2015 at 20:28
Remember delivering something to the last house right at the top end, there was the remains of a mine shaft in their garden and the coal board was filling it in, they said that umpteen lorry loads had been emptied down and it still wasn't full, there's a pit head wheel in the garden now.
