Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 6th September, 2008)
Photo: Dave (Nikon D3 - Nikon 14-24mm F2.8)
Interesting composition. Everything pointing to the mill.
One of the best I`ve seen, Dave. When was it taken? `The Way We Where`has, sadly, gone.
Can someone tell me when trading stopped from there ?
Thanks Ernest. It was taken on 7th April this year.
that is a superb photo i used to play all round there when i was a kid
Looks like an opening scene from a murder mystery film or even a Dracula film,fantastic atmosphere.
In 1945 I used to back my van of the main road into Wigan Pier (The Way we Were)and load Hovis flour in 168lb sacks to take to Glovers bakery in Hindley were I was working. The sacks had come by barge to Wigan and slid down a chute from upstairs.
super picture, one of the best i have ever seen.
'Dark Satanic mill' excellent!
