Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 30th October, 2013)
Good one Thomas.....is it neglect or actually a roof garden....don't know the place or it's history....cheers!!!
That is a wonderful facade, Time to knock it down. Tell me Thomas, is the railway track behind you
I'll just stand by and wait to hear WHY IT IS THE FAULT OF THE CITY COUNCIL that these trees are ruining OUR dear old buildings.----wait for it------wait...........
Tell me thats not really a tree growing on the roof of that very nice building !!
the old Independence Bar...now to become student accommodation
...IT IS THE FAULT OF THE CITY COUNCIL that these trees are ruining OUR dear old buildings.
Ha...Nice photo, Thomas and it is a lovely old building too. Just look at the engravings/sculptings.
Stand by as long as you wish, chuck.
The trees are in the parish Church graveyard at the rear of the building. :D:D
Independence Bar MALC - doesn't ring any bells, do tell us more !
LIZZIE, King Street West is the continuation of King Street, alongside Wallgate Station, towards Coop's Mill and Dorning Street (with the Santus Toffee factory) but it is offset from King Street at Wallgate. As Roger says, the trees must be in the gardens behind the parish church. If that doesn't crackit, try Google Maps & Street View !
Lizzie, looks like the picture was taken stood on the Manchester platform Wigan Wallgate, looking up.
That's the old Coal Board offices.
Thank you Anne and Marcus.....bit of an illusion with the trees.....cheers!!!
My friend used to work there,and I think Thomas was stood with his back to the station wall to get that shot.
That`s either a very tall tree or a very low building
Lovelt building...they dont make them like that anymore.
Went past here this morning on my way from the bus station to Wigan Wallgate. Not all the tress are in The Parish Church Gardens! You are right Anne; it`s taken from where you say - take note Derek Platt.
A sign on the building says "Must be sold at auction."
That was a lovely building when tony Callaghan opened it as big fifteen, I spent 2yrs there as head doorman three floors with exotic paintings and other fixtures, also the tunnels in basement you could get lost in there, many a wiganer had a good night in there before going on to the famous pemps.
