Good photo Mick, this view ( without the cars) can't have changed much over the last 80 or so years.

It's nice seeing a photo of another part of Wigan

Excellent photo, the telephoto effect makes St James's Church and Eckersley Mill look a good bit closer than they are in real life.

Nice to see the old houses, much better than the modern ones. Thanks for posting, great photo.

An excellent photo, the camera lens used gives the impression that Eckersley Mill and St James's Church are closer than in real life.
