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


Comment by Veronica on 16th August 2018 at 08:11
How very cosmopolitan - I didn't know about these buildings. This is what happens when one lives in the 'wilds'....


Comment by Gary on 16th August 2018 at 08:17
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.


Comment by irene roberts on 16th August 2018 at 08:29
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.


Comment by Johnny on 16th August 2018 at 10:19
Its tempting to downsize!!


Comment by Mick on 16th August 2018 at 10:47
Irene its in the modern part of Wigan


Comment by Mortarmillbill on 16th August 2018 at 12:39
It is just a pity that boats cannot moor in front of the Investment Centre.

Wigan is a town that ignores boaters.


Comment by Philip G. on 16th August 2018 at 14:16
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.


Comment by Sonia on 16th August 2018 at 19:18
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
Irene.
It's on Waterside Drive.
Veronica.
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


Comment by DTease on 17th August 2018 at 09:55
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.


Comment by Janette R on 20th August 2018 at 07:06
Hardly the 'modern part of Wigan' !?!
