Victorian Splendour

Victorian Splendour
Mesnes Park still as beautiful today. I know this has been photographed before, but I couldn't resist taking another because of the colour.

This photo brings back such wonderful memories of my youth in the 50's. Thanks for keeping the memories alive.

I haven't lived in Wigan for over 30 years and my memory may not be as good as it once was, but I don't remember there being railings all over the place such as is in this picture. To a degree I can see Health and Safety getting involved with the railings along the top of the embankment, but around the flower beds.... Still, a great photo Brian.

There was a lovely water feature on this spot many years ago.
