The head in the top right as a look of you.

For myself, Dave, monochrome doesn`t do anything for this
scene and would be far better in colour.

I love this picture!---Suitably spooky,the monochrome effect couldn't be better.

Lovely shot Dave. Very much like a pic I took a lorra years ago, (when Russell Lyons barbers pole was stuck on the wall)..;o)

Oooooooooo!!!!!!! Scared me right out of my socks Dave. What a gruesome pic but all the better in black and white. Wouldn't like to hanging around in that lane way at night!!! Cheers all, happy Halloween!!!!

Hung,drawn and quartered. Theres only one Wiend.

Comment by: Helen on 31st October 2012 at 07:45

What a good photo, the black & white really makes it look spooky !

Thank you Dave,it's a great shot for today.This little bit of Wigan has a charm of its own,we ought to be thankful that this lower part of the thoroughfare was left intact.

The two figures put the finishing touches to a good picture.

Looks like Wigan on any Friday/Saturday night!

Which shop was Harry Smith?

I reckon yon heads will bring more people up the Wiend than Tom Whalleys macaw ever did,Oy.I have said it before and I'll say again,'there's a spooky tunnel under there,I've seen it'.

Excellent Dave the B+W sets the scene eerie,like the title to Halloweind well done.

Comment by: A Bolton on 31st October 2012 at 15:23

Halloween masked ok....but my grandaughter was distressed to see the hanging heads.....Good shot Dave but lets have a bit more thought for the little ones!

Comment by: Mick on 31st October 2012 at 16:37

A Bolton shouldnt it be YOO who is making sure your grandaughter dosent see stuff that upsets her.

If I had grandkids I wouldnt mind them seeing this photo because they would have been brought up to recognize that its just a harmless photo

Comment by: a bolton on 31st October 2012 at 20:38

Hi Mick...She didnt see the photo! She ran up the Wiend and came pelting down when she saw the Heads.I was surprised to see the heads on "Photo-a day"........

Comment by: Phil Whitehead on 1st November 2012 at 17:54

I like this Dave, the mono works for me.

Comment by: jon lythgoe on 2nd November 2012 at 00:59

I'll never go up there again

Comment by: Bill on 3rd November 2012 at 09:46

For those who like monochrome photo's... how about changing you colour TVs for black & white.? Save a few bob on the TV licence!

Comment by: Ernest Pyke on 5th November 2012 at 17:19

I like your comments, Bill.
Cost doesn`t affect me as have had a free TV license for nearly 10 years !

Comment by: Fred on 6th November 2012 at 08:44

Now come on...let's not lose our heads over this!

Comment by: C Rad on 17th October 2013 at 01:59

Correct me guys. If I were to walk down this pathway and look right at the bottom - would I be looking at the old location of Woolworths? Or have I got this wrong.
