What a splendid well composed photograph You have inspired me to lace up my walking boots and go and have a look at Parbold Hall from that angle myself.

I was riding my bike along the canal bank in the douglas valley a few weeks ago and was lucky enough to catch the gamekeeper releasing hundreds of baby pheasants.

Excellent photo that Dennis. Does anyone know if they still have the herd of red deer roaming the grounds?

Great photo Dennis. I've lived in Canada now for30 yrs, but lived in Wigan and surrounding areas for 40yrs and I've never noticed Parbold Hall. Is it visible from any major road, and is it privately owned

Derek Parbold Hall is owned by Peter Moore from the Littlewoods Pools family.

It is partly blocked from the main Parbold road as you approach Parbold Hill by farm buildings.
