Carr Mill Dam that not in Wigan

I remember sending in some cracking photos taken at Birkacre,just the other side of Coppull for Photo of the Day and was asked by the then administrators, where was they taken I said Coppull and they never made it onto Photo of the Day.

It looks like the new administration are more easy going about where photo are taken

May be taken in St Helen's but the driver is from Wigan.

Fantastic photo, Edward. Well done.

What's wrong with you lot, Have you all been taking TONKER tablets?
Nice action shot but a wider panorama would have given a better aspect.

Comment by: Harry C. on 3rd June 2014 at 19:16

4 miles per hour limit on the canal Joe.

Comment by: Garry on 3rd June 2014 at 22:17

Anything to do with water is boring, sail boats, speed boats or fishing.

Eddie, you're obviously not a Wigan Warriors supporter.I wouldn't be seen dead there, as the old saying goes, enough said.
