Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 19th November, 2016)
Great Photo David
Subtle. You get drawn into to photo.
Just lovely David. You have a wonderful eye!
Wow! A lovely photo.
What a lovely photo David.l
The look of this old style bridge is spoiled by those modern crash barriers.
Another lovely autumn scene. Not sure when this would have been taken but the leaves are hanging on this year giving us some beautiful colours.
I agree with Mick on barriers ,but it's still a good un .
It's hard to believe all the glorious Autumn tints are a result of 'dying back'! Reminds me to shovel some leaves up for next years compost! Another lovely picture David.
Lovely photo, what runs under the bridge?
The barriers were installed years ago when the Lombard RAC Rally had a stage through the plantations,good photo David.
How do you get to this lovely spot,
Typical council blunde,spoiling a lovely photograph with those barriers,whats the point.
It would be good to take a photo now, and then in Spring, of the same spot.
The canal or the river Douglas Alex.
I can't remember which one.
Alex it not the canal or the Dougie it was the old railway line
Ann you have to walk if youv not got a bike
Surely it was the Whelley Loop (railway) line that ran under the bridge?
No, its the miniature railway that once ran under the bridge and not water.
Ok, walk or bike, but how do you get to it!!!
It was the railway line which ran under this bridge.
The bridge passes over the old Whelley loop line.
Ann, there are several ways to get to the bridge, you could enter the plantations at the gates opposite Wigan infirmary, and follow the tarmac road for about a mile. Or you could follow the road away from the front of Haigh Hall, after you pass over the canal bridge the railway bridge is about half a mile further down the road.
View from below (former photo-a-day taken at a similar time of the year!)
Very well known as the haunted bridge.
