That's an improvement from the last photo,just shows what few bad comments and an article in a local paper can do.peterp your right, I'm glad someone else as noticed that flower pot may get moved next week with a bit of luck.

Can someone tell me where in Aspull this is ?. I left Aspull back in 1983, I was born on Crawford Ave 1947 and it looks very much like the Ave, down the bottom where there was two pit shafts, was there once a playground for the kids here.

Walt - it's in the angle between Scot Lane, which is behind the photographer, and Haigh Road. The Council houses on Crawford Avenue are visible through the trees.
