Well Mick, I dont think much of this....not your best. Where's does it say Wigan ??

Looks like the result of a foggy day on the M6 through Shangri-La Shevvy.
On foggy days Mick stands on the Motorway bridge and lures them to their doom by waving his bike lamp at them, a bit like the villagers used to do in Cornwall with the ships.
The Parish Council pillage the wrecks for spare parts and use the money to feed their many Council Tenants

Bradley Lane, Standish. Opposite the old Heinz factory

HELEN, it says Standish which is a part of Wigan. This is on Bradley Lane opposite the old Heinz offices just before the Bradley railway bridge which has also featured on here in the past. Also i would point out that this is 'posh' scrap, at least 4 of these cars are Porsches.

Oh Dtease that is sooo funny.. hahaha.
Dangling and luring with his lamp on the bridge….there must be vast tunnels underneath Shevvyville where they hide their booty.

Ok Roy you win, I should have gone to Specsavers....but I did notice the posh cars !

I was told by a lady who lived under the narrow railway bridge that they call this road section death valley now, because of people saying that they have seen ghosts.

That mick is total junk!

I saw a mention in the papers of ghost in Bradley a couple of years ago.

Mick, that sounds a dangerous place for the lady to live.

There are apparently ghost sightings in the old Carrington's factory further down on the opposite side, some say it's Rector Hutton. Not sure what he's doing in there though.
