Ive never been down this road, so Ive had a look on Google maps and noticed one of the nearby roads was named Restormel, so looked that up and found out it is a Castle amd O now can see all the other roads in that location are named after castles.

It seems a familiar scene, if I'm correct the 715 bus passes this way. ( or It did until stopped!). Lovely photo.

What a lovely view, and I love the cloud formations.

Nice pic Dennis but the road with the houses you can see on the left behind the farm cottage is Restormel Avenue. Cheers H.

Looking at that it doesn't seem like there is a thing wrong in the world.
Another nice one Dennis

I used to go for walks with my Grandad down Old Fold Lane. We used to live at Heyes Square which is no longer there. Anyone remember Joe Parker's Grocery Shop on Bolton Road. He sued to have a bicycle grocery delivery service........60 years ahead of its time as it turns out :)

A lovely place Aspull, much better than Shevington in my opinion.
Great photo.

I love everything about this photo, although it does make me feel very homesick.. After 44 yrs,I still miss England / Wigan and District.. Great photo Dennis, Thank You.

Harry C, Old Fold Lane was there long before the houses were built. Restomel Ave follows the line of Old Fold Lane.

We like the lovely views,
the happy joyful news ,
the bright and sunny days ,
where breath of vista plays ,
when walking carefree paths
with time and pace your leisure
we glee the smells we taste
and pocket home the pleasure
If only was the case
within our lifelong race
the sunshine always shone
each and every pardon
But within the scrolls of life
the husband has a wife
with every up there’s down
with every goal there’s frown
we the every smile a clown
with make up painted tears ....
