Photo-a-Day (Thursday, 6th March, 2008)
where is this? i lived in hindley and remember the iron bridge but cant remember where it was.
It's not far from the deep pit. If you walk up Ladies Lane just past Hindley Station, turn left down a dirt road (Hemfield Rd). Walk about 400yds and its on your left.
O goody its gor a barrier to stop mobility scooters. Nowt wrong with photograph though.
If keys can be distributed for disabled facilities why can't a similar arrangement be made for these discriminatory barriers?
Brian,the road to the left just past the station is Highfield Road.
My Wigan A-Z is wrong, it says Hemfield Rd.
Highfield Rd it is, which leads onto Hemfield Rd, thanks Evelyn.
Why but them there in the first place Dave? They don't stop motorcyclist, but they do stop me . Apart from that, I'm not disabled. Just can't walk so good. Its the people that put them there who are disabled, under there hats.
Does anyone know who made this bridge? I`ve an idea that it was made by Walker (Bros.) Wigan Ltd.
