Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 11th April, 2018)
Its always been busy at times with dog walkers, and who can blame when the plantations and Lady Mabels woods are looking so nice.
I agree Mick - never been 'quiet' on that Lane
It has always been busy, and not just with dog walkers. It’s such a lovely walk to the Hall from Hall Lane.
Is this not Copperas
I remember that Hall Lane and Leyland Mill Lane marked the end of two twenty-four-mile walks that my late friend Gillian and I did for charity in our mid-teens. As The Beatles so truly sang, "There are places I'll remember all my life".
This is pathetic,can people no longer go anywhere without their own Personal Polluting Machine? For goodness sake get off your backsides and walk or ride a bike before you lose the use of your legs!
No PhilH, Copperas Lane is in Haigh.
Berried are the cherry trees
Where the thrushes nest is,
Buried is the little lane
With toxic metal boxes.
Can't see much evidence of walking going on here.
DTease I go here in car as I live quite a long way of to walk the dogs. It's a bit far for him to walk and as yet has not learned how to ride a bike .
I can attest that since the hall became a hotel with parking restrictions; there has been far more cars parked up along Hall Lane with lots of folks walking up to the hall from there.
The only other time it has been busy without dog walkers is at night when it becomes a gay cruising site and a doggers meeting spot.
It is a Private Road otherwise there would be yellow lines all along there, if the congestion gets worse the residents could, if they so wished, Gate Off the lane.
Thanks Irene for the correction to my Copperas Lane tweet. Now I know where this is !
People say they are taking the dog for a walk then they throw the poor Mutt in the car and drive for miles with the wretched animal panned out in the back with its tongue hanging out and gasping for breath.
They say they are going for a bike ride then they tie the bike on the back of the car and drive 150 miles to the Lake District. When they get there they ride around for an hour or so then drive 150 miles back home.
They say they have to take the kids to school so they stick the kids in the car and drive may be a hundred yards down the road to the school then they do another couple of miles looking for a parking space so that their grossly overweight offspring don't tire themselves out going inside.
Taking the dog for a drive. What an extraordinary concept. They'll be catching trains up Snowdon next!
You're Right DTease.
I always swam the Mersey, never took the ferry!!
Well done Johnny, now if you can just persuade a few more to join you....
