Harry Glovers Pond Hollandmoor
Photo: Martin Pearce

Water colour done by Colin Pearce 25/11/1953 All of us as kids fished at this pond just off harts lane. Sadly filled in for a road that was never completed...! Upholland Anglers in the early 1970's moved the fish to the Blue lagoon up near Billinge. Sadly that has gone also for no good reason.If any one has any photos of Harry Glovers pond please post them or the Blue lagoon.
