Photo-a-Day (Monday, 30th May, 2016)
Platt Lane fields
looking towards Camberwell Crescent - at the bottom of the slope is Clarrington Brook which formed the boundary between Wigan and Ince - used to be three ponds in that field but now only one accessible with still a few fish in it - my one lasting memory of that field was the sound of skylarks hovering aloft; never heard one for ages - later became known as Sullivans field as I seem to recollect a relation of the great Jim Sullivan owns it
Could that mound of earth be covering buried treasure or a dead body?
Yet another well-composed photograph
Have learned more of Wigan and adjoining locations than I ever have
of Billericay here in Essex. A superb web site! Noel, Billericay, Essex.
The trees frame the view of the distance very nicely, very good Ron.
As a youngster , the canal The old top place workings was my adventure play ground ,saw the chimney come down from this field,swam in the cut climbed, the Rockies(rabbit rocks)sailed boats on the dam. Magic.Love a replay.
I have many memories of these fields. As kids we would walk along the canal from Clarington Brook to "Sandy Bottoms". I can't remember if that was just the name we called it or if everybody called it that. Anyway there was a bit of sand near to the bty-wash!:
:0 ) Thanks for the memories-happy times!
Again,a very nicely composed shot Ron.
A lovely summery scene, up to your usual high standard Ron.
Vb as kids we certainly called it Sandy Bottoms learned to swim in there.
