Photo: Thomas Walsh (Canon PowerShot A1200)
A strikingly stark photo. Nice though.Odd history.
Sea of Tranquillity?
On a clear day you can see Blackpool Tower from here.
Nice pic Thomas, I presume it would be the Irish sea you can see!! Big house, very strong character, cheers!!!
In Haigh I believe, Toddington Lane.
Nice pic ;o)
K Tom.........spill the beans. Where is this?????
where is this? never been past this house. interesting photo
You can see Blackpool tower, all of the Lancashire coast line and a ex Wigan Rugby League player house but now with Sky, from up there as well.
This photo would have made a good Where in Wigan was I photo.
Been there,nice pub,one lady in our party knocked over a round of drinks.....! Looooong time ago.
Nice one Thomas, not a lot of people know that, I pass it often.
Took a picture of this for Streets in 1003,The house seems to have had money spent on it since then .
There is also a pub in Whittle le Woods on the A6 with the same name, every time I pass it I wondered how it got the name as they are miles from the sea. (this may be the one Fred Cunliffe means)
Brian, the house is situated on Toddington Lane ,Haigh . I can only imagine that the original owner had a whimsical sence of humour to give the house such a name, it most be at least 20 miles from the sea.
Is this on the Chorley to Preston Rd?
Good clear photo Thomas,Toddington lane is on the bend where Haigh Rd and Riley Lane meet.About 100yds past seaveiw there was once a bridge over the Quarry now filled in if you stood on the bridge you could see Blackpool Tower.link to map.https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&tab=wl
Ron D, I knew you were old but 1003 that really is old.
Freda this house is in a short cul de sac at the top of Haigh. H.
You can also see Blackpool Tower when driving towords Red Rock at the junction of Meadow pit and Riley Lane (on a clear day) H.
Morning to all!! Could somebody tell me what the red square thing represents on the wall by the window, I was just wondering if it had any significance??? Cheers!!
The Sea View Hotel at Whittle/ Chorley is going towards Preston past Chorley Hospital and through the roundabout, a little way up the road on the right hand side.
Forgot to say that the coast is visible from a lot of places in that area... Chorley/Brindle Euxton/Leyland
Lizzie Do you not comment on any of the Communication boards
Lizzie down under the red square is probably the burglar alarm.
Ann21 not at the moment, just learning the ropes and enjoying p-a-d and albums, cheers!!!
Lizzie the red square on the wall i would think is a burglar alarm.
Thanks fellas now I know!! Cheers!!!
Ann21 I do go to the message board and read some of the postings mainly in General. Cheers!!
A very good example of perspective, Tom.
The house is 133 years old (1873 underneath Sea View).
Correction to my comment - house is 137 years old ! (built 1875).
The short post on right is at same angle in Ron Dawber`s photo of June 2003 (1000 years later than stated in Ron`s comment !!
Ernest, This year is 2012. The house was built in 1873. My arithmetic tells me that 1873 plus 133 equals 2006. Surely you must have meant 139 years old????
I may be wrong, but I seem to remember a Large house on Chequer lane in Upholland Moor that was called Sea View.(and I'm not sure I spelled Chequer right!) The house I'm thinking of was past the brickworks.
Right up the street from where I grew up but don't recall the house. I must be getting old!!!!!!
