Photo-a-Day (Thursday, 17th March, 2011)
Could be scary when it's dark.
i use to walk under there every morning when i was a machinist at morcosia many moons ago.
this brings back loads of memories i used to go through this tunnel four times a day at least,going forwards and backwards to All Saints school and back home....
Did Chuck take this one under an alias?
'Little Tunnel'it was always called,David.The men used to have a pint in 'The Bull'a few yards away,then come out and play 'penny toss' on a bit of spare land on the York Street side of the tunnel.Look outs posted of course for the bobby.Ah!we didn't have much but we knew how to push the boat out.
Thats the spot where they found the body of a man who was missing from home a few years back.
I go through there on my bike and always feel as though there some one watching me so I dont hang around.
It is not now a place to be late at night Dave, injecting druggies and crack heads hang about under there and previous to them it was used by prostitutes, from used condoms to used needles - not a nice place at all after dark.
this brings back memories of when we used to live in wilcock st and me and my mum used to walk through this little tunnel every saturday as a short cut to wigan those were the days
