Just to say that I am enjoying your photographs of Ashton and surrounding area, You are giving us a good insight into this district of Wigan. Thank you.
Pat, What makes you think Ashton in Makerfield is a district of Wigan. It certainly is not.
Colin, If Ashton in Makerfield is not a district of Wigan, Why is the local council Wigan MBC?
Sorry, I stand corrected - but just who does it belong to, then?
It 'belongs to' Ashton in Makerfield. It is a member township of a 'Metropolitan Borough', along with many other townships, Wigan being one of them. Ashton in Makerfield is a 'stand alone' urban area. Wigan is a town. In Wigan.
Dont worry about it Pat. I was 'corrected' after calling a narrowboat a barge.
Thank you John, for your reassurance, and also to Cath, who thought as I did!!
What is wrong with being part of Wigan, anyway?
There's nothing wrong with being part of Wigan and I didn't infer that there is. After all, I am from Wigan. But, Ashton in Makerfield just isn't.
May I ask, what's wrong with Bryn being part of Ashton in Makerfield, which it is? Why does it have to be part of Wigan, which it isn't?
Lets just say Ashton-in-Makerfield is Near Wigan. That's what I put on address labels
Indeed it is, Tony!
yes tony i agree
Although, Tony, I wouldn't like to walk it with a hole in my shoe.
Then can I suggest thicker socks Colin? sheesh.
