I didnt know they still did them unwrapped, nice to see we've got the seasons back on track.

So much more natural, hay in the 'noddy'... not an inch of black plastic.
The stuff of 'art'..

David, great photo capturing the autumnal scene, the time of year I love the best. The old Wuchy in the background goodness, the amount of times I climbed this as a kid. I can still remember 70 years ago climbing it with my big sister for the very first time. Thanks David, great photo and as others have already said, good to see no plastic wrap.

Lovely sight without the black plastic! Is that The Wutchy in the background?

Comment by: Julie on 2nd September 2020 at 08:38

Lovely were in Aspull is it please?

Comment by: Pat McC on 2nd September 2020 at 10:09

I think the bales are wrapped in a hessian material.
The farms around here tend to use this rather than the black plastic wrapping.

Comment by: Mick on 2nd September 2020 at 10:18

Julie would it make any difference you knowing which field its in.

Comment by: MikeW on 2nd September 2020 at 11:19

The bales wrapped in airtight plastic become sileage, the unwrapped bales are hay. They become two different types of animal foodstuff.

Julie..WHERE.
Lovely Late Summer / Autumn sight all over the Country.

Comment by: Julie on 2nd September 2020 at 12:36

Just curious Mick that's all!

Comment by: Garry on 2nd September 2020 at 12:58

The top of NewSprings brew towards Aspull, the field is to the right,
Now it wasn't all that hard was it Mick.

Comment by: Garry on 2nd September 2020 at 13:04

Julie asked a perfectly good justifiable question.

Comment by: Poli on 2nd September 2020 at 13:43

Julie, I'd say it the field is the one between Ivy Brow and Dukes Row on Wigan Road.

Ignore the ignoramus and their silly snide comments, they think themselves as being clever? They should begin acting their age and not their shoe size!

Comment by: John B on 2nd September 2020 at 14:23

Mick and Alan, for gods sake stop with the awkwardness, Julie simply asked a civil question.

Comment by: DTease on 2nd September 2020 at 15:33

Winter drawers on, all is safely gathered in.

Comment by: xpat on 2nd September 2020 at 17:04

Is there any likelihood of Baldrick and his team (the other one) digging up the Wuchy in search of long lost archaeological treasures?

Comment by: Mick on 2nd September 2020 at 17:19

Just curious Mick that's all! well Julie now you know will you be going to have a closer look, because if I ask where something is I will follow it up.

Comment by: irene roberts on 2nd September 2020 at 17:30

Sounds like me and Veronica's old-fashioned Winceyette nighties, DTease ..."all is safely gathered in"! What do YOU say, Veronica? Or shall we WOW him with our 1960s baby-dolls??! Only joking....nice to have a laugh between Wigan World friends. xxxxxxx

Comment by: Veronica on 2nd September 2020 at 17:50

I think it's a bit too soon for the flannel drawers wit' lastic in't legs Irene....

Comment by: Mick on 2nd September 2020 at 19:04

Irene I sit here everyday laughing at the corny comments we get on PAD

Comment by: irene roberts on 2nd September 2020 at 19:18

So do I, Mick....so do I. I'm glad something brings a smile to your face and I am perfectly happy to be a source of amusement. Hope you had a nice birthday yesterday. Agreed, Veronica, about the elasticated leg in the flannel drawers but it's nice to have somewhere to keep your hankie, lass! (I bet Myrtle wore those behind the buffet bar to keep the chill out! ).

Comment by: Veronica on 2nd September 2020 at 19:51

It's funny you should say that Mick, I find it hilarious to read so many mis- spelt words from folk who get their there's mixed up!

Comment by: Arthur on 2nd September 2020 at 21:06

Yeh a good few corny people too, isn't the Mick.

Comment by: Bob the Builder on 2nd September 2020 at 21:08

Some great land there to build houses on.

Comment by: Bri on 2nd September 2020 at 23:04

Weetabix for farmers large cow.

Comment by: Mick on 3rd September 2020 at 06:24

: Veronica some folk spell stuff differently because there minds are going much faster than the average man or woman, but over all they tend to be much smarter than the average man or woman, the doctors have a name for it, its called didlicksyah.

Comment by: DTease on 3rd September 2020 at 08:50

Either that Mick.....or they just can't spell.

Comment by: DTease on 3rd September 2020 at 10:22

And who is Syah anyway?

Comment by: Veronica on 3rd September 2020 at 11:08

I wouldn't bother trying to translate Dtease, you'll only get a headache. If I was being charitable I'd say it was predictive text, but the nuns used to box his ears at school so perhaps he can't hear too good either!

Comment by: Veronica on 3rd September 2020 at 11:32

On second thoughts It could be Sister Syah who boxed his ears..

Comment by: DTease on 3rd September 2020 at 14:44

Do you think he meant dyslexia, Veronica? At my age, I'm having a hard time keeping a grasp on reality as it is. Trying to keep up with Mick's exotic spelling at the same time doesn't help at all. If only he was a bit less intelligent he would perhaps make more sense and poor less than average folks like me would be able to keep up.

Comment by: Arthur on 3rd September 2020 at 15:46

You can't put owt where there is nowt.

Comment by: Veronica on 3rd September 2020 at 16:25

Mmm it's a word I'm not familiar with Dtease these hi-faluting words are beyond my ken....perhaps Arthur knows best....
