The CRT Wigan volunteers do a great job in keeping the Wigan flight clean and tidy and assisting the boats through the locks.

What a pretty picture that is Dennis, the bridge is framed by the little gardens either side. Top marks to the hard working couple.

Lovely photo Dennis of great history, I used to have a pint or two in the Top Lock inn that was just to the left of the photo. The pub was demolished in the early 1970s. It was known as the top ale house, the Kirkless inn was known as the middle and the Commercial inn was known as the bottom.
I still prefer the old format, but the photo is much better that the blurred background edge.

It's a credit to them. A lovely picture, the water is like glass and stone can only improve with age.
