Nice one Ron. These cottages always look a perfect picture, whenever they are shown, have done for many years.

Lovely photo Ron, I wonder who lives there.

Just further from this house I think Ive seen a sign saying organic meat for sale.

Lovely Photo Ron. These cottages are known as Gothic Cottages and are on School Lane in Haigh.

Spot on Ron, the gardens at these cottages are always kept immaculate a credit to the owners.

Good shot - well composed.

You are right David Barker they are on School Lane and not Copperas Lane.
Google Earth proves it. Just says beautiful cottages within the bounds of Haigh Hall.
There`s also a Country House which looks very similar to these cottages nearby

There only just on school lane.

Comment by: Phil Taylor on 24th September 2012 at 19:58

Ha Ha Mick, "only just on School Lane"!
They're more on School Lane than the famous number 10 is on Downing Street!
290ft from the junction with Copperas Lane if you want to be pedantic.

Beautiful picture.Congratulations to all who take pride in caring for their property.
I think this is the sort of picture
that will make a lot of people homesick.

Phil Taylor, I`ve just realised I should have put your name in my earlier comment! Have you looked at Google Earth and used the little man? What do you know about the Country House?

A beautiful photo, makes me homesick.

I remember a wigan rugby player living there but it may have been in the big house with the stables lower down.
