Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 14th July, 2012)

It could be anywhere in Britain.
We need to 'see' the Wigan connection.
Mick, you`ve got me guessing whereabouts this is. Is it West of Wigan?. Very unusual to see an all female group of ramblers - all got trousers on !!
The name reminds me of that well known phrase "Home James and don`t spare the hosses".
Like the drinking mugs.
Maggie will enjoy this P-a-D.
Good pic., mick.All ready for walk.
not the Wigan flight Mick - can't place it - where is it? - I think its up your way
This photo as ended up with the wrong title it should have been, A Group of Women Ramblers at Appley Bridge locks.
Here is a video of the same rambling women watching the boats.
So it`s Appley lock No.91 Mick, which is West of Wigan as I suspected.
As rambling groups go it was very small. Did you enquire where these ramblers had come from and where they were going?
I can`t follow your line of moaning Gary. You keep referring to bird photo`s in your comments and all of the bird photo`s could be taken anywhere.
This is the Leeds and Liverpool canal, so can`t possibly be anywhere.
Yes Ernest your right it was west of Wigan.
I didnt ask the rambling women where they had come from but they did head off towards Parbold.
To Ernest Pyke you need to get your eyes tested. There is a bloke in the party. As well as the pole comment earlier in the week. Wearing trousers on a ramble is in my opinion sensible attire. You even spelt horses incorrectly.
Jean Davies, the ramblers are all female as Mick says. The chap is working on the lock and is from the narrowboat.
Hope that your eyes are as good as mine when you are 84.
Jean Davies, I deliberately typed hosses.
Hoss is cowboy slang for horse.

this is my boat on me and my dads boat trip going back home to a small place called norbury junction
Yes it is Appley locks! The boats in the lock ate James and Abraham. We were on our way back from Liverpool and heading towards the Wigan flight! Glad you like the cups!
