From this angle you can see the little row of cottages on the halls roof

You could probably see your house from there with that thing Mick, if only the view wasn't obscured by buildings and trees. Seems an odd place to place a telescope to me. A periscope maybe, but a telescope ?

Not much of a view from there,why move it.it was ideal were it was,or will the public not be allowed round the hall were it was situated before overlooking Wigan ?
Good photo Mick.

The Telescope is in the wrong place for me, I agree with Ozy.

Its in the right place for zooming in on all those bridesmaids low cut frocks.

You're too old, Mick.
Stop tormenting yourself!:-)

Here's an idea, why not clean up after your dog using one of those green bags that the council provide free, then chuck it on the deck directly in front of an information board? Or better still, why not lob it into the branches of a nearby tree, or bush, so that we can all have the pleasure of spending the first 6 months of 2017 watching the bag slowly disintegrate ? Brilliant or what ? I'm afraid I can't take credit for the idea though. I really don't know who first had ' the light bulb moment ', but it certainly seems to have caught on.....big style...Bone idle doesn't even come close.

By the time I had tottered up that hill I think I would be too old as well!
Ozy, why not rub the noses of the culprits in the contents of the bags? I'm told it works well with dogs.

It's catching the buggers, that's the problem DTease. They're a devious shower. Getting back to the stethoscope though, it's all academic, as, if it's the very same one that used to reside near the park benches down below, the thing is so badly scratched as to render it virtually useless anyway. In fact, looking at Billinge hill through a Guinness bottle, (which I seem to recall attempting on occasions, rather strangely ), would be akin to using the Hubble space telescope by comparison.

I hope that the telescope is not in a dangerous position as regards the sun.
