Good solid houses, I suspect Yorkshire brick.
These are very similar to the ones on Ratcliffe Road, Aspull.
Looks like stone to me Howard.
Stone is the best material there is in my opinion for building. It lasts many lifetimes and is so beautiful. I would love to see the deeds to them - they would make interesting reading.
Correct Hugh, my mistake.
They really do look wonderful, great shot Mick, what Wigan's all about!
Kitt Green ... hoorah!
Born and brought up there ... lots of happy memories.
Great old Houses, at least the chimneys appear to be brick. Also looks like all the porches were added much later than original.
These are good well built houses. Imagine, on a cold winter's night with a roaring coal fire watching TV with a glass of sherry...nowt comes close.

W C Fields again Garry - "A woman drove me to drink and I didn't even have the decency to thank her".
As you appear to be reasonably well informed in the culinary department DTease, perhaps you could advise me. Would a bottle of plonk from Aldi count as one of my five a day?. They just happen to have an offer on Chilean red at the moment you see, and I figure that this would be a good way to satisfy all my nutritional requirements without the bother of having to engage in that tedious cooking nonsense, whilst at the same time lurching around with a permanent grin on my face.
Wine is made from grapes.
Grapes are a fruit.
Fruit is good for you.
Ozy, in some quarters five bottles of Aldi plonk per day could be considered a trifle excessive. However, in my experience five bottles would be the bare minimum necessary to induce a state of befuddlement that would allow you to stop worrying about your health.
Aldi...shopping I don't think so, I work for a living. Quality food for me. Marks and Spencer.
Yes Howard branded names for me too with food and drink, something you can trust. Cheapness shouldn't come into it!!!
