It will be wider at the back than it is at the front because its on Broad O Th Lane.
If that dog walking woman wasn't on the crossing, you would have had a better shot of me heading out on my daily patrol.

Eeeee by-gum Dennis, taken a risk theer owd lad. Did you do a risk assessment before boarding that bus to Shevy ?. Two things happen to mind, one - can you see a particular house from there, two - those Dandelion hiding just under the fence will just have to be dealt with.

Nice photo with a nice "villagy" feel. Hello Mick!

So this is the village of Shevvy -on - Shangrila. It's just like any village with a red brick building circa 1903! Tubs with flowers and bars to lean on. The shops on the left are just like the ones we had in Scholes. It can't be too far off from the Byrne Lodge. But that cannot be Mick the trusty WW photographer on his faithful steed in disguise? No it can't be ... can it?

What a nice chucklesome photo . Made my day . Looks like he's heading my way . By the way , does Nick du Toit still run The Plough ?

Is that you Mick? I thought it was a spotter for the Parish Council! I’m sure I saw a couple of their vigilantes hiding in the bushes just waiting for me to drop something. I kept a wary eye open on my dash for the border I can tell you!

The woman dog walker should have been a couple of steps in front.
nice shot Dennis.

Lady must have a death wish crossing over in front of Mick and with the traffic lights on green. Shevy must be the poor relation nearly every were else the white/yellow lines have been repainted.

Is this the top of the village or the bottom... just wondering..

A picture of the pub in the 1800s can be seen at chorleyinnsandtaverns.blogspot.com . For those interested in now and then. It’s marvellous it is still going considering most pubs posted on here have long since served their last orders .

Shevy looks run-down to what it use to be.

Good 'un Veronica ! Keep them coming.

WIGANER, i don't know what you're on about, that part of Shevington seen in the pic hasn't changed in 50 years or more, so what you're saying doesn't make sense.

Comment by: Wiganer on 7th May 2021 at 19:49

I said Shevy in general, l didn't mention this part.

Comment by: Roy on 9th May 2021 at 09:42

I can't see the word general in your posting and i still think you're wrong, if anything Shevington has improved over the years, having lived there from 1969 to the early 2000's and still passing through regularly i think i should know of any deterioration, i'm surprised Mick hasn't taken you to task.
