That Weeping willow is a lovely tree, theres one on the side of the canal in Parbold as well

How very cosmopolitan - I didn't know about these buildings. This is what happens when one lives in the 'wilds'....

Weeping willow may look pretty but the roots are nasty - within 1000 yards of property their ability to undermine foundations is well known.
Interesting photo Ron. New Wigan to me.

Where exactly is this?
Comment by DTease on 16th August 2018 at 08:51
Blimey Gary! Over half a mile away? Thatís some root system.

Its tempting to downsize!!

Irene its in the modern part of Wigan

It is just a pity that boats cannot moor in front of the Investment Centre.
Wigan is a town that ignores boaters.

V.B.'s struck by 'something found'; cold-hearted bricks, here filed
But always knew her furnished lea; and paints its flowers, wild.

What is the big red semicircle?
Comment by Mick on 16th August 2018 at 16:29
AP its to stop people swinging around the fence
Comment by Gary on 16th August 2018 at 17:46
DTease - you are right. An extra "0" crept in there. 100 yards is the recommended distance.

Is this near Swan Meadow Road?
Comment by Veronica on 16th August 2018 at 19:36
That's what is missing PG some nice pots of geraniums and double begonias!
Comment by irene roberts on 16th August 2018 at 19:57
I'm still lost as to where it is!
Comment by DTease on 16th August 2018 at 22:06
Irene, it's round the corner from Wigan Pier. Between the Pier and Chapel Lane.
Comment by Mick on 16th August 2018 at 22:21
Irene its next to the canal.
Comment by Philip G. on 16th August 2018 at 22:30
It's on Waterside Drive.
You've mentioned two belters in your previous post - the pelargoniums don't like being disturbed too much, though. And what about the wisteria that you've painted? Ö a framed print on the wall of the 'Centre's foyer, perhaps?
Comment by Dave on 16th August 2018 at 22:59
Gary, I did wonder about that like DTease. Maybe yours grew in compost made from dinosaur droppings.
Comment by irene roberts on 17th August 2018 at 08:48
It's next to the canal, Mick? I'd never have guessed! Thanks, DTease and Philip G.
Comment by Jeannette m on 17th August 2018 at 09:20
Irene, it's further along from Trencherfield Mill down Poolstock/w
Wallgate. Hope that helps.
Comment by irene roberts on 17th August 2018 at 09:37
Thanks, Jeannette m

A boat on the Cut is the right place for me
Moored to the shore 'neath a tall Willow Tree
I sit and I watch as the world hurries by
As hard as I try I can't understand why
My boat is much better I can do as I please
Like sit in the sun and the warm summer breeze.

Hardly the 'modern part of Wigan' !?!
