Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 1st June, 2016)
Good photo David. Lovely serene looking waters.
Absolutely stunning, Summer is here.
The road is so busy now with heavy noisy traffic that you cant relax and enjoy that view any more.
What a lovely peaceful scene David.
Ha! I drove over the bridge here on Monday - saw the magnificent rhododendrons around the lake - and returned with my camera yesterday - but I've only just uploaded the results.
Always a lovely view, though -even if, as Mick says, the traffic is so heavy you can't pause to look - but it's not a long walk from St Joseph's car park. They only charge a Hail Mary - but the penalty for overstaying is three Hail Marys, and four Our Fathers.
Great scene, well captured and not a human in shot.
Good camera-work, David!
England's Green and Pleasant Land...Beautiful...
LOL Rev David - but only three hail Marys!
If only those who have never visited Wigan and surrounding areas could see that there is a lot of beauty to be seen there
One of the best views in the Wigan area, well captured David. Like Rev David says, it is not a long walk from St. Joseph's car park. I wouldn't dream of parking at the roadside.
Very witty Rev.
I remember going here to fish in very different weather conditions. It was around 1959, I was 14 at the time, as were my mates from Norley. It was extremely foggy and hard to see where the water and lawn met. Very spooky but quiet and peaceful.
Great shot David. Thanks for the memories.
Lovely picture David, thanks for the memory. I've spent a lot of time in the general area and around the fish ponds.
very good David.
just curios - what was the origin of these ponds? ornamental/man made/who owns them???
Malc it was once the grounds of Wrightington Hall, its now Wrightington hospital.
Fantastic shot David...thank you for the memories....cheers!!!
lovely shot david
