Good photo Davic. That tractor could do with a blade twice as wide.
Another great shot David. I took quite a few pics in the snow but live outside Wigan! Keep them coming some - nice images.
A job well done for you Dave and the man behind the wheel......:-).......cheers!!!
Another wonderful photo David. Thank you again. A plethora of subjects on Copperas Lane. Are you old enough to remember Dr. Haworths's House? Arnold Singers's house (now demolished and replaced)? Both on Copperas Lane. Hope you grabbed a pint at the Balc after trudging through the snow. Just finished shoveling snow myself but at least we have a ski resort 15 minutes away
I wonder if these farmers ( if it is a farmer) get paid for clearing the roads, I saw one going down Gathurst lane the other day doing the same.
Nice one David I was round there myself on Saturday morning You read the 20 sign as inches deep in places. H.
some great times had a s a kid walking back from Haigh hall and watchin out for Lady Mabels ghost up near the cemetery
Yes, they do enter a paid contract to clear snow in rural areas, they are also paid to cut hedgerows and are supposed to keep drainage ditches clear of debris and over-growth keeping them manageable. Work attachments on a tractor. It is not out the goodness of their hearts.
Sorry but i.m married to a farmer and both he and our son use the tractors to clear snowy lanes.They also tow peoples cars when they get stuck in the snow. The local contractor undertakes jobs such as cutting hedgerows and clearing drainage ditches. Your ordinary farmer pays them to do this type of work on their land.
Thanks again everyone,Hi Brian yes remember all them ,and I still go in the Balc ,whats your surname Brian ?.
Hi David....it's Gore....we used to have a lovely older lady and gentleman live next door by the name of Barker with a son named David. It would be a coincidence if it were you.
Hi Brian ,no its not me ha,I do know a Brian Gore who still lives in Aspull any relation?
No relation. I didn't even know I had a namesake living there. I always thought that my family were the only :Gores" in the village.
