Comment by Ellen on 25th May 2017 at 04:33
I'll bet he just got back on the bike!
(unless he has power assist!)

..distant cousins of my father's family used to live in Appley Bridge,but it's so long since I was there,I can't remember anything except their names,and that they were brother and sister, neither of them had ever married and they lived in their family home, which was an end house in a terrace....Well,it was about sixty years or more since I was last there!
...But there I go,rambling on about things that no Wigan Worlder will have the faintest interest in! Time to stop,Ellen!


Comment by Helen of Troy on 25th May 2017 at 07:36
You just carry on rambling Ellen !

Tricky photo to comment on.....cyclists, you either love em or hate em. He looks pretty in pink though !


Comment by Whelley Wayne on 25th May 2017 at 07:46
is there a decent pub in Appley Bridge?


Comment by DTease on 25th May 2017 at 07:47
Blimey! How much does it cost to get kitted out for bike riding these days?


Comment by Mick on 25th May 2017 at 08:33
Ellen its not time to stop, this is what this photo a day is all about, bringing back memories like yours and starting off a conversation.
What where you relations names you never know some one who sees this might know them.


Comment by Irene on 25th May 2017 at 10:46
I agree. Keep the memories coming, Ellen. They spark off other peoples and lead to interesting stories.


Comment by A.W. on 25th May 2017 at 12:00
Been up there many times on a bike and it really is hard work!


Comment by britboy on 25th May 2017 at 13:28
Live in Appley Bridge for 16yrs, good area to live especially when the bone works close!
Fished the canal a time or two.


Comment by Veronica on 25th May 2017 at 14:27
It takes courage to ride bikes in this day and age on the busy roads. I'll admit I am too scared to ride mine now. A lovely bike in my shed used 3 times - all because a hugh lorry came too close!!! I wouldn't care I was hugging the pavement and on a country road! Never again! But I do envy the cyclists!


Comment by Maureen on 25th May 2017 at 15:33
I still have my lovely bike upstairs..not used it for ages now..I just haven't the puff to do any hills..wish I had one of those electric ones,but just for them thar hills..there's no feeling like cycling through the countryside..I'll never let it go anywhere ever..you never know I might win on the lottery and get to live somewhere where it's as flat as a pancake.

I'm not really a fan of Hugh Lorry, although I thought he was great as Prince George in the Blackadder series. In all fairness though, he really should allow cyclists adequate room when overtaking. After all, how would he like to be squashed up against the kerb on his penny farthing?


Comment by Veronica on 25th May 2017 at 18:19
Should be me protesting at the pictures of lorries - not Howard and Alan!!! : -))


Comment by Ellen on 25th May 2017 at 18:31
Thanks, Helen and Mick, but i was rambling!...However, the names of my relatives were Anne and John Grayson, always referred to as Annie and Johnny (I think)!
Ozy, Would that be Hugh Laurie,who was in an excellent American series, House in which he played a pain-killer addicted doctor...Maybe you are familiar with it?


Comment by Mick on 25th May 2017 at 20:53
Ellen Ive never heard of Anne and John Grayson,


Comment by Veronica on 25th May 2017 at 21:11
Hugh Laurie was a huge success in the Night Manager as well!


Comment by Ellen on 25th May 2017 at 23:06
Mick, I'm not surprised, they were both deceased by the mid '50's!


Comment by Jinksi. on 25th May 2017 at 23:30
Ellen, Veronica,nowt to do with the great Wigan World,but Hugh Laurie is one of the best Bango players in the World .


Comment by . Ozymandias . on 26th May 2017 at 07:08
Is he one of the world's best banjo players Jinksi, or one of the world's best bingo players?


Comment by Veronica on 26th May 2017 at 08:25
He's multi talented Jinksi -I have heard him playing the banjo! I liked him in The Blackadder series playing nitwits.


Comment by Ellen on 26th May 2017 at 19:50
I saw him on a night time talk show, when he played his Banjo! He was really funny in the talk area,too.
