Photo-a-Day (Sunday, 22nd April, 2012)
A nice natural shot of the pub seen by everybody who enter Wigan from the A49 north.
A beautiful pub, though I haven't been in it since the days of George and Mary Waterhouse. Let's hope it survives!
nice to see the flowers in bloom.
Nice picture.Nice spring flowers.
....Had hoped for something a little more "green" for Earth Day--or don't you celebrate Earth Day on the eastern shores of the "pond"?
Lovely Thomas, Why is the Hospitl A&E sign on the lamp post in red when they were always blue.
Great photo. The Red hospital sign indicates it has an "Accident and Emergencies" department.
Garry all out street signs are colour coded, the normal ones are green and white and the motorways are blue and white.
So that way if you see big directional sign in green and white and just one little square of blue with a number in it you know that the route towards a motorway.
The red on the hospital sign means blood.
Yourphoto has an appropriate Sunday morning atmosphere,Tommy.
That traffic island is the only one I know of, where drivers, when on the island, don't have the 'Right of Way'
ron theres one here in havelock north n.z. and it does cause some problems with locals and tourists.but then again most kiwis cant drive properly
Where on Wigan World can i find the old photograph of the 'Cherries' and the discussion that ensued as to whether or not it is the same building today as it was yesteryear?
Years ago my youngest son always called it the Sherry Gardens.
Roy type cherry gardens in search square at top pf the page under forum
Thanks peterp, problem sorted.
Spent many a happy hour in there in the 80's.
We used to go carol singing where the posh houses were then.We always got more money from there!It was a good walk from our house....but worth it !Thanks for the picture.
Called in the Cherry Gardens recently.Totally changed from how it used to be.No atmosphere,not much seating.
