That's as pretty as a picture, nice and straight. It was crooked when my wife Betty and I were married there.

Nice sky, Thomas. The lower clouds look like Candy floss!

I think they should start again, it still looks ever so slightly askew to me. Anyone agree.

Nice pic....I think it is an optical illusion, with the street lighting etc.

The houses are leaning slightly to the right.

It's an optical illusion or am I seeing things!

The Church steeples perfect, it's the TV areal pole that giving some of you Optical illusions.

Comment by: Maggie K on 10th June 2013 at 20:05

I agree with Colin Harlow - the areal is not straight.

If Johm Lennon had know there was a place called Scholes in Wigan, instead of writing that there was Four thousand holes in blackburn, lancashire, he could have wrote Scholes.

I think it Rhymes better
