I like how you have captured what looks like a photo frame within a photo by using the goal posts

Those horrible rugby posts spoil a beautiful scene.

Is this Wigan?

Comment by: Alan on 3rd September 2014 at 13:10

No not Wigan, but Lancashire.

Comment by: Colin Harlow on 3rd September 2014 at 17:46

From 1894 to 1974, Parbold and Dalton was part of Wigan under Rural District. Now West Lancashire. The Church address is, Parbold Hill, Douglas-in-Parbold, Lancashire. WN8 7TG.

Comment by: Roy on 3rd September 2014 at 18:36

Wigan IS in Lancashire, always was and always will be. As Colin states,the church is in WN8.

There is an interesting article about county names old and new here:-
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-27140505

Excerpt:-
First there are the historic counties, which date as far back as the mid-Saxon period. Some, like Westmorland, no longer exist in an administrative sense. But especially in places like Yorkshire, Durham and Cornwall, they are important expressions of geographic and cultural identity.

Comment by: Kanye on 12th September 2014 at 19:34

I always clock off and especially ignore when someone/ anyone tells me to 'get a life'. Absolutely dreadful expression .

Comment by: truwigana on 13th September 2014 at 09:38

Comment by: Kanye on 15th September 2014 at 16:20

This nation is built on moaners, they are the ones that change things, you wouldn't,t have the NHS without moaning pie eaters you silly arse..

Comment by: truwigana on 18th September 2014 at 11:38

p.s. love reeling sucker's like you in moaner :) don't even need bait on the hook

Comment by: Julie on 19th September 2014 at 17:15

truwigana What a sad and nieve person you must be. Don,t you know this is a forum and people will now be rightfully wary of you and your comments? I am genuinely interested in the pictures, you sadly are clearly playing some silly game to annoy. You,ve marked your own card, hope others will see it as well.

Comment by: truwigana on 19th September 2014 at 20:02

oh Julie it is you that is naive (not nieve)if you care to read my first comment i only said what a bunch of moaners some people on here are, people put some really nice pics on of our town and its people only to be shot down, i to love some of the pics on here and if its not 1 i care for i would not be critical of it or even downright rude about it.

Comment by: Garry on 21st September 2014 at 08:06

Well said Julie. The problem with some people on here like this individual truwigana, want a reaction. They are the Vandals of the forum, they never comment on any subject weather it's lack of education or maybe down right ignorant, who knows. This site is all about debates and discussions people who are genuinely interested in the days photos who have incidentally, gone out their way to take these marvelous shots. Truwigana...please respect peoples commentst, and who knows, you might learn something.

Comment by: truwigana on 21st September 2014 at 10:36

it's ok i get it here now, its all one special little group of narrow minded biggots, don't like any "outsiders" commenting on their own private little website, is fine for them to be critical but when someone gives a bit back they get all upset, i have NEVER once made negative comments on ANY photograph on here, UNLIKE some of you lot who are downright rude to some of the photo's people put on here for all to enjoy, enjoy your sad little pact, you lot are everything that is wrong with this town and indeed this country stuck in your prehistoric timewarp and Garry YOU provoke reaction on EVERY pic EVERY day, but don't like it when i play you at your own game, you really need to move forward in life

Comment by: truwigana on 21st September 2014 at 10:38

BTW Garry i have learned a lot about some people on here..........

Comment by: Garry on 21st September 2014 at 12:09
