Another Haigh Foundry Mile Marker

Is this along the road to Worthington, going towards The White Crow pub?
I reconise that fence
Quite a mystery this one. My guess . Old Parish. Chapel Lane maybe?
I would guess it is Irene, as I have seen one like this on Wigan Lane past the sand quarry and near a farm, wonder if these mile markers were cast at the original Leyland Mills Haigh Foundry, or are replicated by the J T & E Castings, Valley Gate Haigh Foundry.
Cyril, I think I'm wrong actually. The background isn't right. I don't think it's the one I was thinking of.
I know where it is, it's 5 miles from Wigan and 3 1/4 miles from Chorley, lol, sorry David, I couldn't resist..
This is what I was thinking of at J T & E Castings. Lost Art Industrial Heritage Wigan. http://www.lostart.co.uk/
