How picturesque! It reminds me of pictures on Chocolate Boxes when I was a little girl.

Tennis, anyone? Maybe not, ... then perhaps a nice gentle gallop along the rising ground that leads to the top of Tattenham Corner. Nice photo Mick.

Nice idyllic location- the same picture was put on in April concentrating on the daffs!

A girl in my form at Hindley and Abram lived here at Crooke,I remember walking from Standish Lower Ground in the holidays. The buildings then did seem to be a lot darker than they do on this pic.

This photo is a few weeks old, no leaves on the trees and the Daffs still out.
