Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 24th June, 2015)
Thanks Ron, for quite a few years we lived abot 3 hundred yds past the left corner of Woochy, there was also a footpath that ran across this field about where the cart tracks are and I walked it many ,many times when I was courting. Memories.
Goodness me! I remember when the Woochy was naked and a steam funnel escaped at the top due to activity underneath, that though, would be back in the 1950s, do you remember Ken R ?. How nice it looks now compared to then, thanks Ron for the picture.
Surprising what you can do with a muck heap and a few trees, very nice Ron.
A lovely peaceful shot Ron,the grass looks like a carpet.
I wonder how many Wiganers know why its called the Woochy
Like Ken my husband and I did some of our courting around Woochy Rook when it was just a slag heap, now looks lovely.
Mick do you mean the real name is Woodshaw Rook.
You can see the same landscaping effect passing the old Chisnal Hall Colliery pit rooks on the side of the M6, looking at the green rolling hills you would never have know what they were originally.
One place I never visited although I used the scrapyard for parts for my old car at the Aspull end
