Photo-a-Day (Monday, 14th October, 2013)
Not many shoppers, how do they afford this with no shoppers?
Never seen it Kath.....never will....so thank you for a glimpse in the Galleries....cheers!!!!
big white elephant
Not very busy is it,what time of day,what day was it taken.
You go uphill after you enter the entrance from Standishgate. This view is looking downhill and is what you see before leaving the Galleries.
Wilkinson (which was Debenhams and Pendleburys previous), also Marks and Spencer, are just across the road (Standishgate) from this entrance/exit.
When was this taken Kathleen?
Ive rode my bike up there.
Mick; You didn`t ride your bike up
there as you turned on the flat part, with this hill on your left, then went back towards the market. In other words you didn`t go up to the floor which this hill leads to.
Sign of the times. Photo could have been taken at any time of the day because its like that most of the time.
Your right Ermest.
Never will Liz? Are you not coming back to have one last look at God's country before you meet him personally? Pepper Lane, Graham Farm, St Marie's and a few more of the places of your youth. Find your way to Manchester and i will bring you the rest of the way for 'free', how's that for an offer from a fellow Standisher?,lol.
How can coming back to the UK be visitin' gods country? when there is no god.
Man-made religion is just brainwashing. Be yourselves and follow your own path.
Roy; Liz watches Mick`s video`s, so she sees a lot of Wigan and other places. Watching a video is next best to being there.
I think that most of the empty shops in the arcade were purchased by out of town companies who have put the rents so high that nobody can make a profit, hence the high percentage of vacant shops. Can anyone verify this?
God's country is just an expression Laurence, although bear THIS in mind, remember what you've just said when you're in a desperate situation and you find yourself saying a prayer. Correct Ernest it is.
I've always been in a desperate situation. Roy. Its called 'life'
Never been easy for me and I certainly won't waste my time praying! Man-made religion is one of the greatest causes of conflict in the world. We are individuals and should create or own destiny.
Mick, was that a deliberate misspelling of Ernest??
It was taken early morning just as the shops were opening.
My word Luarence, how bitter, I really do think we have far greater problems to solve than that today. You obviously would have benefitted from meeting my old and late lamented friend the Rev. Charles Walker, Vicar of St. Michael and All Angels, Wigan and probably the finest human being I shall ever be priviledged to meet.
I'm sure the rev. Walker was a fine chap,but that has no bearing on Laurences' non belief in God(s)'
I'm sure he has put much thought into the subject and arrived at the conclusion on the evidence as he sees it as oppossed to being indocrinated by his peers.
This is a good discussion for a change.
Roy that is a grand offer....I don't think I will ever get back....to my home land....stop it you are bringing a tear to my old eye....seriously though it would be out of the question for now....but you never know.....and yes Mick drives me all around the place...for which I am very grateful....cheers!!!
