I knew where this was before I looked at the comments. Dairy Pit is about 10 to 200 yds behond the bridge on the opposite side from the towpath. Good photo Ron.


Comment by Fred Mason on 3rd September 2015 at 03:04
A very peaceful photo, Ron.

Good one.


Comment by Mick on 3rd September 2015 at 07:37
The Green bridge still looks good after being refurbished,

They want to to the same with the Seven Stars bridge on the canal in Wallgate because that one is in really a bad condition


Comment by Kath H on 3rd September 2015 at 08:15
I've stood on that bridge thousands of times and my Dad used to work at the Dairy Pit in the 1950's.


Comment by maggie. on 3rd September 2015 at 08:35
Thank you so much for a lovely memory, sailing along this part of the canal on a lovely summer Sunday and meeting really Great Wiganers.


Comment by Aubrey on 3rd September 2015 at 08:36
A great photo Ron.


Comment by Syd on 3rd September 2015 at 12:53
That is just a brilliant photo Ron, Thanks!


Comment by Garry on 3rd September 2015 at 13:17
I see some of the leaves on the trees are starting to turn yellow, a sign of Autumn. After saying that, Autumn shares some lovely colours that are stunning to see.
Nice one Ron.

that's where I learned to swim 50 years ado, along with half of wigan


Comment by DotM on 3rd September 2015 at 16:30
Thank you for this photo Ron, it is wonderful to see, especially for someone who left Wigan many years ago and still thinks of Wigan as home.


Comment by Beryl on 3rd September 2015 at 17:37
Is this a little bit of Heaven on earth?


Comment by Kath H on 4th September 2015 at 07:57
Thanks David. I looked at the photos you suggested of the Dairy Pit. Unfortunately my Dad wasn't on, but I did recognise some of the faces. When my Dad was on night shift, I used to walk down the line with him on Fridays, when he received his wages, and took them home to my Mam. We lived in St David's Crescent, and I went to Aspull Sec. Did you?

Ron....have you seen the swan with the cracked beak recently ??? .I do hope that it's not come to a sad end


Comment by Ron D on 6th September 2015 at 19:05
Bren Not seen cracked beak for some while no idea what's happened.
