Photo-a-Day  (Tuesday, 19th October, 2010)


One of the stone pillars on the path down the side of the Woochie in Aspull. I don't know what it was for, perhaps someone can help.

Dont them pillars have a metal bit on them maybe for a pulley of some sorts.

I think the pillar is distracting,Harry,in a pleasant Autumn photo.

Good photo. I find it difficult to put it in perspective. Where on Woochie would this be?. Near the Top Lock end?.

Thanks Dave, I agree with what you say, but I wanted to show where it was. Cheers

its somthing to do with telephone poles,there's three or four in a line and all have wooden remains in the middle

The poles are gone that were embedded in the concrete that held the ariel tip line that created the Woochie.
