How lovely! It's so nice when you just happen across something that another person has done simply to make passers-by smile. Just what we need at the moment. My friend used to live in Spindle Hillock.

Lovely how someone who has took patience and time to make it look a Christmas feeling with everything in bad times at the moment. Where is spindle hillock please I have never heard of it.

It's a lovely idea, sometimes they can be there for months though. I'm sure the postman who empties the post box will take it off eventually. Lovely hand crafted work.

For those of you who went to Aspull Secondary Modern, David Sutton lived at Spindle Hillock until 1969.
Their back garden adjoined a huge field, which lay alongside the railway line.
