Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 21st July, 2012)
St Peters, Hindley
Four cars all with there foot on the brake pedal when they should have selected neutral on the gears and applied there handbrakes.
A dull day but a really nice shot,clear and concise. Early morning perhaps.
A lot of drivers don`t know the Highway Code which states:-
"In stationary queues of traffic, drivers should apply the parking brake and, once the following traffic has stopped, take their foot off the footbrake to deactivate the vehicle brake lights. This will minimise glare to road users behind until the traffic moves again".
Is Hindley a part of Wigan?
An extract from:-
"The church was built in 1863–66 and designed by the Lancaster architect E. G. Paley. It cost £9,507 (£650,000 as of 2012)and provided seating for 689 people".
done some weddings at that church in my time.
every driver holding cars stopped with footbrake !!, tut tut, but all joking aside, Its nice to see shots without seeing a load of roadsigns well done Mr Walsh.
The church is ready for some bleech to remove the green mold all over the brickwork.
It funny that pub usually full of unemployed smokers who is claiming benefits for being drunks an druggies. All stood outside with Cig in mouth an pint in hand.
This is a lovely shot of Market Street and St. Peter's. I am originally from Ince and now live in Abram, but I have always liked Hindley; it is homely. I went to the grammar school there and remember going to Hindley Market on lovely hot summer Fridays when it was a really thriving market, full of atmosphere. Sadly all gone now, but the memories linger.
Your right about the glare Ernest and its even worse in the wet are when people have got those rear fog lights on when its not foggy.
I can't see a pub, mick
oh ere we go again lets have a lesson on the highway code from our friend mr pyke shall we. talk about making a mountain out of a mole hill.the freaking cars are stopped at a red signal if the dont wish to use there hand brake so be it. who gives a hoot not me i would'nt even stop i would just go round the outside of them and cut them up i can do that cause im a stunt driver and i dont need to the highway code to do it
Mick and Ernist are very sad people, apart from the time they clicked on photo-a-day, their on about brake lights. The four cars could all be slowing down to stop.
Both of you make boring comment all the time.
some people need to get a life
Pub it round corner. Me an Ernist we live in posh area of Wigan Shevington an we is only expressing our opinion. An them cars should be doin what I say I has been driving for over 60 years. Car an push bike no-one know more than me.
Alan the four cars couldnt be all slowing down at the same time and being so close to one another.
Good photo Tom - nice and clear. well focussed. Shame again about the dull bland skies we are getting. Not really good for photos. Ha! see Alan is back with his 'interesting' comments on the photo!!! If those cars were only just braking to slow down then I wouldn't want them behind me.
I love these photos of Hindley as my dad was born in Harrison St. in 1898
There are a lot of scathing remarks here....at least dirty harry adds some humour to it.....where does he get his dialogue from??....lovely.
Allan Hurst, Mick impersonator and john: When are you going to make useful comments instead of making idiotic remarks about other peoples?
As for alan, you can answer your own daft questions by using the Internet.
My last comment applies to dirty harry also.
Janice in front of you would be more dangerous than behind you, I would have thought!
What's a freaking car Dirty Harry? Where's the dealership and are spares readily available?
They could be automatics. Its not worth selecting neutral or park with an auto. I bet Dirty Harry can't drive! If he can...help!
