That bridge used to be two railway sleepers when I was a kid
Remember me brother going hurtling down to it on his bike, getting wheel stuck in the gap and going head first into the infamous ‘yellow brook’ – for a week he had the look of jaundice until mam scrubbed him clean – happy days!

I still cross that bridge on my bike at least a couple of times a week.

fab pic, i used play round here as a kid and we always wondered why it was orangy colour water, there was a tree near here to that had a big hole in that you could climb in, at the top of these step :)

I remember the railway sleeper bridge. The photograph brings back many memories. Changing the subject. Are there any photographs the "fairy Glen' with its waterfall?


Comment by Joe on 6th April 2009 at 14:19
Where is the Fairy glen,


Comment by Pauline on 21st April 2009 at 17:52
Fairy Glen is in Appley Bridge


Comment by David on 21st April 2009 at 22:51
The Fairy Glen that I meant, was about 500 yards from the bridge in the photograph, in the direction of Hall Lane.It was a small rocky waterfall with a stream that ran into, and was at right angles to the Douglas. I'm sure someone remembers it. It's 30 years since I have seen it, as I don't live in Wigan anymore.

Does anyone remember the cafeteria in Fairy Glen, or have any photos ......I can't find any references online or images. As I recall, it was a large black and white wooden structure tudor-like in appearance with tips running up either side. We went every year as a walking day trip up Parbold Hill from my local Sunday school...Platt Bridge Independent Methodist Chapel. It was big and dark and very magical to a child. Anyone out there with info or memories to share..please post.
