What area/street is this.
If it wasn,t serious it would be funny. Terrible situation, glad i live on a hill.
Please ignore my previous question, Totally missed the address bottom of picture.
Blimey i live in Hindley Green and think i am reasonably close to this address.
Great photo Mike.
Hello Mike, Going back quite a few years, when pits, mills. and factories in the Wigan area were working, the weather for `Wakes` week, at the beginning of July, was frequently wet.
The owners of the indoor amusements in Blackpool were happy !!
At least the kids are enjoying their waterfront property. My brother used to live in an adjoining street. Windermere Road. Wigan must have had a lot of rain
I bet the insurance companies are firstly having to pay out but then rubbing their hands when premiums for everybody have to go up?Feel sorry for the people who have flood damage
Shouldn`t have named the Avenue after a town in the Lake District !!
Seriously though, it must be terrible to have your home flooded.
I have only experienced flooding on one occasion and it really is very distressing.It took ages to get rid of the smell afterwards.Good photo,Mike.
we have never had our house flooded, but have suffered the upset & inconvenience of it twice.I do hope the people affected are able to return to normal as quickly as possible.
OMG. Someone was quick to blow up the boat. I have not been flooded but had a water from the loft pouring through the ceiling and cascading down the stairs while I was on holiday one winter. It was awful.
We recently had these floods in a small village not far away .Going through the village on the bus ,it is awful seeing all the furniture and belongings out on the pathways.Yuo can never replace personal belomgings.
Jean and anne21, please refer my last comment on P-a-D 1st July`12.
I live parallel to this street and from what I can tell I dont think any of the houses got flooded, just the road. the road about 40 yards from my house was also a foot deep on this day.
Cheers for the comments all, i live on Rydal and gets like Rydal Water when it rains bad!
