Very nice.


Comment by Howard P on 8th April 2017 at 07:23
Good solid houses, I suspect Yorkshire brick.


Comment by Rosie G on 8th April 2017 at 08:09
These are very similar to the ones on Ratcliffe Road, Aspull.


Comment by Hugh Wilson on 8th April 2017 at 09:00
Looks like stone to me Howard.


Comment by Veronica on 8th April 2017 at 09:39
Stone is the best material there is in my opinion for building. It lasts many lifetimes and is so beautiful. I would love to see the deeds to them - they would make interesting reading.


Comment by Howard P on 8th April 2017 at 10:49
Correct Hugh, my mistake.


Comment by Syd on 8th April 2017 at 13:01
They really do look wonderful, great shot Mick, what Wigan's all about!


Comment by Bradshaws Girl on 8th April 2017 at 15:55
Kitt Green ... hoorah!
Born and brought up there ... lots of happy memories.


Comment by Derek Platt on 8th April 2017 at 16:19
Great old Houses, at least the chimneys appear to be brick. Also looks like all the porches were added much later than original.


Comment by Garry on 8th April 2017 at 18:47
These are good well built houses. Imagine, on a cold winter's night with a roaring coal fire watching TV with a glass of sherry...nowt comes close.

W.C. Fields "I cook with sherry; sometimes I even add it to the food"

W C Fields again Garry - "A woman drove me to drink and I didn't even have the decency to thank her".

As you appear to be reasonably well informed in the culinary department DTease, perhaps you could advise me. Would a bottle of plonk from Aldi count as one of my five a day?. They just happen to have an offer on Chilean red at the moment you see, and I figure that this would be a good way to satisfy all my nutritional requirements without the bother of having to engage in that tedious cooking nonsense, whilst at the same time lurching around with a permanent grin on my face.

Ozy,

Wine is made from grapes.

Grapes are a fruit.

Fruit is good for you.

'Nuff said....Cheers....!!


Comment by DTease on 8th April 2017 at 22:25
Ozy, in some quarters five bottles of Aldi plonk per day could be considered a trifle excessive. However, in my experience five bottles would be the bare minimum necessary to induce a state of befuddlement that would allow you to stop worrying about your health.
Cheers.


Comment by Howard P on 10th April 2017 at 05:58
Aldi...shopping I don't think so, I work for a living. Quality food for me. Marks and Spencer.


Comment by Trevor on 12th April 2017 at 08:57
Yes Howard branded names for me too with food and drink, something you can trust. Cheapness shouldn't come into it!!!
