Photo-a-Day  (Wednesday, 14th June, 2017)

View from the Pike


View from the Pike
The Heinz factory dominates this view - but the clock on the tower of Upholland Parish Church is just visible to its right. Beyond it the mast on the hilltop defines the Upholland-Ashurst ridge - with the glass factories of St Helens beyond in the mist.

Very good David, the view of UpHolland is remarkably clear considering it's from Rivington.

You have better eyes than I David, I can't even see the church let alone the clock!!!
