Looks so much better now that all the Rhododendrons have been taken out, thats the same old overgrown Rhododendrons that a lot of Wiganers who didnt know what they where taking about complained that the Wigan council where destroying the plantations.

Thankyou Ron, haigh hall means a lot to me when I used to go when I was younger. It always brings back good memories for me as my childhood days.

Wait until those open spaces become overgrown with impenetrable brambles Mick and then tell us how much better it is.

Nice clear photo Ron.
Where's Garry these days?

Irene has summed it up in just a few words.

A special place.

Good one, Ron.

More like that in the winter would be good. Cheers.

Good photo Ron, once again-memories. Did they totally eradicate the "rosiedendron" (Lots of Aspullites called them that.) Some of them are good looking.

Photo-a-Day is my first port of call each morning, it’s the one thing that keeps an ex-pat in touch with the home town.
I don’t mind whatever is posted, the contributors do a fine job in surprising me each day....keep up the good work.

Haigh Hall has alway been a special place.

It looks so fresh and green - not Autumnal at all!
Thank you Ron our intrepid snapper-no stranger to inclement weather. We're all proud of you!

An excellent Autumn scene,the Rhodi's had to go,they have been removed in many other places,they were damaging other plants.
