Dave When I drive past here I wonder who had been put in the Stocks by, it must have been the Bankes family, because they own the land and what they used to throw at them.

Thank you peterp. I live outside Wigan but next time I am there will take a trip. See David Barker's comment. This photo is perfect for a calendar and I think it would be a great idea!

I would like to see dirty harry in there, and I would put lots of breadcrumbs around him to attract our feathered friends
