Special Colin, Thank you. So uplifting!!
Is there a technical name for that type railing on countryside bends?
I think there's an obligation to have them for visibility reasons in some places, rather than hedgerows etc.
As I walked past that one in the Autumn, I noticed some damage towards the Red Rock End.
Beautiful photo Colin....cheers!!!
You always know your in England when you see historical white wrought iron fencing around bends in the road.
I can see a Fire Hydrant marker post the top number is the size of the water main and the bottom one is the distance to the hydrant.
Shows that Lancashire is no longer all ' dark satanic mills ' All that open space...& don't anybody dare comment on the road in the pic...not a car on it!
The view from here is one I show people who think Wigan is all mills and slag tips. I know why you were drawn to it Colin. It is hard to think that it was once dotted with pits along Riley lane.
Nice one Colin.
Nice picture Colin, I understand the white railings date back to the 1930s; a lot of traditional hedgerows were uprooted and replaced with them at that time.
Wonderful photo Colin, but everyone is confused about the colour of the fence. It seems rust colour to me, time for a paint job.
The fence is to keep cows secure and safe. There's a farm just up the road.
The roads quiet.
I can't see the white pole on Winter Hill, can you!
Somebody should set up a fence restoration group, all as you need would be some wire brushes and some undercoat for starters.
