Photo-a-Day (Tuesday, 16th July, 2019)
Mowpin Lodge Mick. Lovely photo, I don’t know who is responsible for that street light but it fits the scene admirably I think.
It’s an example of how change can be a good think if done with a little thought and consideration.
What a great winter scene this will make next time it snows.
That is so pretty, and I love the lamp. xx
If I was the mayor of Wigan I would move the George Formby statue from the Grand Arcade and have him leaning on that lamp post.
Good idea MIck - but would the residents of the lovely cottage not mind!?
The new lamp posts been put up by the hotel people.
Am I right in thinking the head ranger, initials GRW lives or did live in this property.
Yes Anne he is one of the ranger workmen , but I think I saw it in the papers that he had retied
No Anne, he lives in the cottage just over the mineral railway line bridge on Higher Lane/New Road.
Mick, I'm very surprised that you took the photo and didn't have your bike leant against the light column, or is it discreetly hidden.
A nice sharp photo Mick. And perhaps George would be in a safer position stood by the lamp-post than if leaning his Shuttleworth Snap around what looks like Ramsey Hairpin.
There is a fine statue of George in Douglas showing him kitted out in full TT rider regalia. Heee.
Thanks Mick and Cyril.... I haven't seen GRW since he was in his teens but was always aware of his interest in nature and such.
Cyril this is where he lives because this is just over the mineral railway line bridge on Higher Lane/New road
Rightio Mick, though I must say it looks a whole lot smarter and not overgrown than it was the last time I saw it, looks a different cottage alltogether.
