Photo-a-Day (Thursday, 9th June, 2016)
Lovely shot Mick of a lovely place.
Mick good picture, like the bike.
Used to walk over there regularly as kids, happy days! Thanks for the memory Mick.
Lovely scene - I prefer to look at the Pepper Pot than that mast in the distance!
Good shot Mick.
Can anyone tell me its history?
Looks like its been repaired several times by the patchwork of different bricks!
I like your bike-stand. I used to rest me bike on the road kerb with the pedal!
What exactly are these pepper pot's seen them elsewhere and have often wondered
Vb you don't have to look at the mast if viewed from the other direction....see 18th September 2014
beryl I think they are ventilation shafts for the Railway tunnel
A bit more information on the Pepperpots as well Neil ! I hadn't a clue as to what they were. Getting on with "A Footplateman Remembers" those lads didn't half have some fun!
Will someone please remind me,-is the tunnel between Upholland station and Orrel?
Yes Ellen, they ventilated the tunnel you can see if you look over the bridge next to where the old Sandbrook Arms pub used to be just down from Upholland College
Thanks Neil; it's been a long time!
