Photo-a-Day (Friday, 13th July, 2012)
Mick,a fantastic photograph ,one of the nicest I have seen of Mesnes Park.
This is a great photo mick. Nice and clear and with soe good foreground and background interest; shows of the park beautifully.
This is a wonderful photograph. It brings back memories of looking in the rocks for swans and swan eggs. Never found either. didn't realise as a small boy what damage a swan could do with their wings. I suppose I,ll draw some comme34qqnt about swans being a protected species, and me being a young hoodlum.
great picture mick.
Mick, the rock is called Pulham rock - refer P-a-D on 1st Sept.2007.
For "The Pulham Legacy" refer :-
Don`t suppose any one has used this rock as a diving platform !! Wonder how deep the lake is and mud !!
For more info on Mesnes Park refer :-
Look at "Galleries" on this website.
Some more info on the rocks.
1878 GREATER MANCHESTER, Wigan, Mesnes Park
”Waterfall and cascade, Rocky Bank and Chasm.’ Recently rediscovered and restored by the Friends of Mesnes Park, and subject to further restoration.. Anyone can see it – Free! Pumps by Green and Carter. Designed by John McClean.
Definitely one of the best photos of Mesnes Park. Looking at the photo makes me think why couldn't I have come up with that view.
Well done, Mick.
That pond is filthy. Just look at the scum on the surface of the water if you pass it some time.
It needs a fountain to keep it aerated.
What lovely memories this photo calls to mind. Summer Sunday afternoons - if my Dad wasn't working, although if I was in my best clothes, I wasn't allowed to play on the swings. When I was a teenager, a group of us from Chapel used to come here & "hang out" on Sunday evenings. Thank you so much.
Its not even waist deep,it was full of big kio carp a few year back wonder if they have survied
In my opinion, this is a perfectly composed photo. Well done Mick!
Just simply beautiful! A wonderful picture,Mick. I thank you.
Whenever I see pictures of this building I really do go into "happy memories"mode!
.lovely sundays.....and the sun always seemed to shine.
Thankyou mick for a lovely photo.
come good with this shot Mick
would have looked even better if the weeping willow had still been there.it was chopped down a few weeks ago.
Mick, the library in Wigan haven`t got the book " Rock Landscapes, The Pulham Legacy". It only came out on 11th May 2012. When I pointed out that local history in Mesnes Park was in it, they`ll try to get a copy.
What a brilliant photo, by far the best picture I have ever seen of Mesnes Park!
