I used to play in Borsdane woods has a child, benn in there many, many times I have never seen it so high.
Good photo. It must be 60yrs since I was in Borsdane Wood, thank you.
Your right Harry it looks like the river Douglas. Excellent photo
People call the new flood defences but when a brook turns into a river we need them
Like it, Harry.
good photo how do you get to Borsdane woods from Westhoughton
Thanks all for your interest and comments.
big c. I don't think you can cross the fields now, you would have to go down Castle Hill Road to Hindley Mill Lane, which brings you to Hindley end of Borsdane Wood. H.
Wouldn`t like to cross the little bridge with all that water and slippery leaves Think you might get a bit wet!.
Merry christmas to all on Wigan World and afar.
Great shot, Harry. You can get to the top of the sixty steps in the wood from the track which leads off Castle Hill at the end of the cemetary wall if it's on your left. The track leads to the farms and past Crows Nest signal box but it's open to walkers.
