Nice photo. However, this is a 'work in progress' picture taken weeks ago. Note the new mortar in the refurbed wall to the left. Looks rather different today 21 08 18.

Who would want to eat beside a stinky cut full of biting midgies, it was more picturesque when there was flowering shrubs and a large weeping willow tree growing there.

You can see the tree here: http://www.wiganworld.co.uk/album/photo.php?opt=5&id=25354&gallery=Wigan+Pier&offset=80

Looks like the photographer is stood on the Trencherfield side towpath (back to the mill Swan Meadow road immediately over the stone wall. The large stone gatepost seen is the entrance to the mill yard.
