The Dam (Flood alleviation scheme) by Harry Cunliffe (Panasonic DMC-FZ38)
Taken from a different viewpoint, showing the steel posts intended to prevent any uprooted trees and large debris from reaching the dam.

It's the Duggy not the Thames. It's the lowest point in Wigan what's going to flood? Waste of money for me, mind you, i live up th'ill in Standish.

These piles are to stop large trees from passing.

Mick Harry did say on his caption what they are for. If trees did get trapped on these posts would that not create flooding problems and how easy would it be to remove the tree or large debris? Cannot visualise the dam area will have to visit it one day
