Photo-a-Day (Thursday, 25th September, 2014)
Up Holland Village
Thanks Neil. It looks just as I remember it!
Lovely old buildings, you can see the sags in the brick and stonework and it has great character.
This photo makes me feel like I heading home.
An interesting photo, very good.
Manys the time I rode up.... & down that hill on a good old Ribble bus !
Great photo, the hill looks even better than it did all those years ago.
Does anyone remember the lamb holding a tray in the window of what was the Butcher's shop on the right going down the hill?
that's a great photo Neil. I too used to pass on the Ribble bus!
greaves butchers at one time ,dam good meat he sold
Tricia, I remember it and there was a pig as well at one time. The Butcher's was Clayton's it closed around 1976, Atherton's butcher's across the road on the left was still going about 12 years ago.
Reminds me of the Hovis ad and the young boy pushing his bike up the hill delivering his loaf of bread.
Walked along this road many times between the pub and hall where dances were held. Beautiful in the summer to sit outside the pub listening to sixties music.
Reminds you of the Hovis advert ....shame about the wall on the left side of the picture.slightly spoils it.Lovely homely picture though Neil.
Looking at this photo again.It really is a "belter" would look good ion a frame at the bottom of my stairs..Mmmmm
Lots of Quoins on the building on the right.
Reminds me of Yorkshire, but it is Up Holland. Nice shot Neil.
Ken R, excuse my ignorance,but what are quoins? I have a feeling I ought to know but maybe have forgotten.
Colin if it where Yorkshire you would be able to smell a good chippy.
Ellen. If you look at the building on the right, you can see that the corners are built with stone blocks that are interlocked and raised from the wall. These are Quoins.
Ellen they are the white bricks at each end of the shop wall.
Ellen, Quoins are Masonry blocks at the corner of a wall.
Many thanks, Ken, Garry and Colin. As I had known but forgotten this! There is another word currently in use in these parts, but I'd be blowed if I can remember what THAT is! Ahh the
??joys of seniority!
Did you grow up on this hill? Wow! Bring on the snow , what an amazing ski ride. This is what did as kids , pray don,t tell me no one did it here.
