peace and quiet

Is the Crooke Hall pub any better? Called in a couple of months ago and from the oustide it looked derelict - grass overgrown, rubbish abound, benches rotten and as for kids 'play area'!
Is the nearby Rotal Oak a better stop off?

Very colourful and quiet, lovely. Well done Austin.

I`d like to "give the bird" to dirty harry.
"Give somebody the bird" (American & Australian very informal)is
to make a very impolite sign by raising your middle finger towards someone in order to show that you are angry with them.
This finger gesture also has two vulgar meanings, which I put in an earlier
comment, which has not been displayed on P-a-D for obvious reasons. So to see these vulgar meanings you have to look at Wikipedia.

That looks like a coot

Good photo Austin - and a day when there is a bit of character in the sky instead of bland and rainy. Last time I was in the Crook Hall Pub and the Royal Oak they both left a lot to be desired. Both badly in need of a re-vamp.

All that rain as certainly greened up the trees

there is not a decent pub on the canal in the Wigan area
nearest is Waters Edge at AP
