what was the intention with the right turn there?

Malc, it had been originally planned for the Lancaster Canal to continue here to Westhoughton and Salford. In 1864, the Leeds and Liverpool Canal took over the section of the Lancaster Canal from Wigan Top Lock to Johnsons Hillock. The planned line of the Lancaster Canal went straight on originally, through Monk Hall Bridge. Only a short, partly dried-up section exists beyond the bridge.

Ron, you uploaded a pic of the same step on 19th April this year.

Jonno, photographers email photos to the Admin who then decides which photos to publish and when. The photographers have no say in what is published on Photo A Day.

Arrow, i realise that, what i am saying is why does the photographer virtually repeat the same photograph.

You obviously dont know what you're talking about Arrow, uploaded means to send your pic to WW, not to 'publish'it as you call, it on P-a-D
