Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 26th June, 2021)
That makes a change, someone using it's correct name, rather than referring to it as "Rivington".
Clasp your hands with thanks to God,
To take all in and hold with love ,
to cherish, value, give soul feed
then pass to child so they will seed,
grow with humble , learn to care,
protect and fight for,
what we all shall wear,
breathe the air of freedoms scent,
remembering always who gave not lent,
so we can look upon this view ,
that those who follow can see it too...
Long time no post Neil, welcome back,
Some big sheds on these modern farms now a days
A lovely photo of ' England's pleasant pasures' I will be humming Jerusalem all day.
...in Englands green and pleasant land...
Nice one, Neil.
Very nice Summer photo.
Nice to see the old ' idle hill of summer ' from a different angle than I normally do . A beautiful clearly focused picture .
The patchwork effect of open countryside is always appealing and with the cows gently grazing. Still waiting for Summer though!
That is just lovely..so serene...thank you Neil.
Excellent photograph Neil.????????
Beautiful clear scene & one that clearly shows Lancashire is not all dumps or ' dark satanic mills'
Thanks Neil !
Ah but Helen that farm is a bit of an eyesore.
I bet they wouldn't get planning permission to build such a massive farm shed and silos down south.
I wonder if the locals get the smell from it drifting over their back gardens.
You can't have travelled far in your own country Mick. I don't live 'down south' any more & these last 20 yrs we have lived in the East & its not cow country but arable land with huge fields but we have travelled up & down England for years and vast cow barns or sheds reach far into northern parts of the UK, more than I ever saw in Kent.
Neil are you any relation to the Rigby family we used to know at Holland Moor ?
Very good photo Neil, Every thing in the frame is neat and crisp.
Do you need planning permission for an agricultural building?
Mick,you come out with some ridiculous statements at times.
Nice one, Mick...well done you...!!!
Thank you Neil for bringing back lovely memories.We have walked over to the mast on many occasion, in the past.
Helen, I don't think we would be related to Rigbys at Holland Moor. But we would not be very far from them in Pemberton and Orrell.
I used to caddy at Gathurst golf club for Eric Rigby, he lived at the end of Shelley Drive
Ok Neil. The family lived just down the road from us in Ormskirk Rd, in a very old farmhouse that had a large overgrown orchard behind it, this orchard was a sea of yellow daffodils in the spring. Mrs Rigby let you go in & pick your own daffs which she would make into a bunch for you....& charge you a pityful amount of money . I remember she had quite a few children & a large harmonium in the kitchen !
..... but no telly?
