Ron, I'm sat here in north Yorkshire wondering where in Aspull this is !. The only place I can think of is Simms Square, Bolton Road, am I right ??.

I love this....it's like a Christmas Card! There were some in the shops Christmas just gone that were black and white with just one feature picked out in red; this beats them hollow!

I'm on the coast, 8 miles from Newcastle, and recognised this before seeing the caption.
Photos don't get much better than this one.
Excellent Ron.

I bought some cards from B&M bargains with a similar view, a bargain 50 cards for £1.99

Ron, I now think its the Finger Post area and what used to be the butchers shop, around the corner is what was the Queens Head pub, second guess right I hope !!. If this is taken from your house you must live close to where the Running Horses was.
