Ive sat on that bench


Comment by Gary on 15th April 2019 at 07:52
Lovely photo.
Mind you, the older end of my relatives in Aspull would never have called it a bench. Always a "form."


Comment by kath on 15th April 2019 at 08:48
Gary - I've not heard that word "Form " since I was in school. I wonder if it is a word still used?


Comment by Ron D on 15th April 2019 at 09:14
Cripples not aloud in here.


Comment by DTease on 15th April 2019 at 09:37
Tell the Council Mick, they will put a blue plaque on it saying “Mick wos here” anno domini 2019.


Comment by Veronica on 15th April 2019 at 12:43
Ron D are they not 'aloud' because the peace and quiet will be disturbed?
Is the bench in memory of Lady Mabel and her true love? I bet their ghosts sit on that bench after their ramblings at Hawthorn time....


Comment by Gary on 15th April 2019 at 13:04
Kath - I still use it. Often produces strange looks!
There were "forms" down Bolton Road Aspull as far as th'owd co op.


Comment by Mick on 15th April 2019 at 14:42
Thats true Ron Cripples not aloud in here and its also hard work to get a bike past these silly gates.
The other day I was coming from Rabbit Rocks and had to life my bike over the three old railway sleepers which are 12 " high, I slipped and fell inside the sleepers that are like a box with my bike on top of me
I was stuck and couldnt free up my arm to push the bike off me, only thing I could do was slide it by using my fingers until I had enough space to free up my arms


Comment by John D on 15th April 2019 at 14:44
I remember back in the 50's/60's every chippy had a "form".


Comment by Veronica on 15th April 2019 at 15:07
Not wishing to be disrespectful but I think the word 'Cripple' shouldn't really be used these days - so I've been informed.....


Comment by Cyril on 15th April 2019 at 15:35
Has the Woodland Trust now put up a gate at the top end of Hall Lane by the side of Bernard's, if not then you could get a disabled scooter along the path from there.

Pity someone wasn't there at the time with a video camera Mick, you could have featured on You've Been Framed.


Comment by Veronica on 15th April 2019 at 16:40
Every a clogger had a form as well- you could sit and read a comic whilst waiting for clogs to be 'clogged' and smell the leather at the same time! ;0))


Comment by Veronica on 15th April 2019 at 16:48
I think a 'form' was without a back... The kind most schools used...we weren't meant to be comfortable on them.


Comment by Mick on 15th April 2019 at 16:55
The word Cripple was used by a Cripple who gets out and about and takes photo for Wiganworlds Photo a Day.


Comment by Pw on 15th April 2019 at 16:58
I always thought a form had no back,I remember putting them out at school


Comment by Xpat on 15th April 2019 at 19:07
I would never use that word . Made me cringe just to read it . That word is vile and inhuman!


Comment by Veronica on 15th April 2019 at 20:23
Disabled or disability is the correct term to use.
