Photo-a-Day (Sunday, 7th December, 2014)
Top of Haigh Road
Historic part of Wigan, Im surprised its never been used for a film location.
Pub, Church, School Cobbles and Windmill its got everything.
Thanks Ron, this pic brings many different memories, having a cool drink in the pub, playing cricket behind the pub, my mother and niece are in the Church Yard,, the last time I saw my father was in the funeral arrangers through the arch behind the van, also when I was a kid through the arch taking my grandfathers pony to be shod at the Blacksmiths. So much history for me in this one small picture. THANKS.
All my family are in St Davids cemetary dating back to 1863 fantastic photo.
Ron has the post office shut down?
Alan yes the post office as shut down
Most of mine too Ken I visit St David's every time I'm in Wigan. Not often enough
Nice photo Ron
Ron, any idea why that small section of road is still cobbled?
Good picture, always go in the balcarres or the vic or both when staying with my brother and sister-in-law
Alex. No idea ,but they where relaid about 5 years ago.
Alex its cobbled all around the pub even the car park is still cobbled
Cobbles last longer than tar.
worked on a house in that row it had a walled garden the well had a tunnel halfway down looked like it leading to the church
