Wigan Flood Alleviation (FAS) Phase 1&2.2 Comments
Item #: 32784
It's looking towards Widdrington Road Barrie and most likely taken from the path at Bottling Wood. Wonder how deep they dug down, when the new wards were being built at the infirmary they had to go down 90 feet before hitting solid enough ground for the foundation pilings.
I think you are correct Cyril, as I went back into my photo's taken during my visits to the site and one of the early ones show the temporary fencing being erected at the top end.I forgot, that as one enters Coppull Lane, that there are side roads off the the Wigan Lane end. At the start of the contract, the trees hid the houses at the top.
