Photo-a-Day (Tuesday, 12th November, 2013)
Good photo. It is good to see some games being played on the old cricket pitch.
What brilliant facility Wigan teenagers have now, thanks to Wigan council, Mr Whelan and the Ainscough brothers
Good one Roger .....can't get to see it....so thanks for the pic...cheers!!!
Nice photo Roger is that the field of dreams in the backgroundm
Where we used to run the 100yds and 220yds races on our school sports day...interesting to see how it is now.
That is a really nice photo.Hope it is all well looked after by the youngsters who use it.
My dad used to take me with him to watch the cricket in the fiftes but I can`t remember where it was ?
Those buildings in the trees at the top right corner, were they once the labour exchange ( or something like that).
KenR, I hink you're referring to "The Huts" (tax office)on Bridgeman Terrace, which was opposite the top righthand corner of the playing field, not on the pic.
Where the trees are is a dentist surgery & private houses. there was a small grandstand there in years gone by
I remember that dentist well,I had a filling there then went and got Lynne the dental assistant to ring up for my GCSE results from school...TLS... what a crap morning that was .
Where the boy is standing with his raised arm is the position of the long/ triple jump pit during athletics meetings at TLS.
And the square brick building that used to stand in the far corner was a squash court as I rememeber
The building in the corner used to be a fives court, some weird sport the Grammar school lads used to play.
Somebody .plese tell me whereabouts this is? What is the road at the back there ??
Hi Jean, it is between Parsons Walj and Bridgeman terrace
Is that Fred on the side Jo. Do you remember how we climbed the pipe each Sunday.
