I love this picture! It makes Wigan look like a medieval European town!

One brilliant picture! I would love the photographer to take the same shot in one months time. Reason being; the tree to our left of Haigh Hall always puts on a splendid show. Spring it is a 'pink ball'; Autumn, it is a 'golden glow'. It can be seen for miles!!!!! Especially from the 'Galleries'. Thank you

Does anyone know which church it is, middle left of picture ?

Comment by: Derek Platt on 5th September 2010 at 20:26

A great photo what a postcard it would make. I could be completely disoriented but the church at middle left looks like St. Patricks on Hardybutts. I'm willing to be corrected on this

To use this as a screensaver is a good idea , its a good picture.

Comment by: Derek Platt on 5th September 2010 at 23:10

After looking on the internet, I've changed my opinion. The church at center left is Wigan St. Michaels and all angels C.E

Comment by: Catherine on 5th September 2010 at 23:11

I think the church is St Michael's not St. Pat's. Great Photo.
