"On a cold and frosty morning"....A little macabre, but a very effective picture.

Spooky. I thought that these scenes where in the Dracula movie.

What a mess ! I thought cemeteries were supposed to honour the memories of the dead. This one is an insult.

Kath this definitely has got a spooky feel to it....but a beautiful picture...cheers!!!

I bet them two trees could tell a few story's if they could talk.

Very neglected! What on earth is in the bucket? What a mess.
A real spooky picture,dom`t think I would like to have been there!

Jean the bucket is where the window cleaner is buried.

I LOVE this pic Kathleen, it is 'different'...I like different... As for the 'neglect', that's what happens with Budget cuts... I don't know who covers these Cemeteries Wigan or Greater Manchester.. but they are the ones who let this happen.. Another reason to be cremated and ashes scattered......

Thought it might be Mick.

Yes, a sppoky shot Kathleen. Well seen. Perhaps the cemetery is meant to be like that - could be a woodland cemetery but I don't know Wigan that well. To be honest, I would rather see it neglected like this than have all those vases full of artificial flowers and other paraphernalia that you see. I always think that that gives the air of cant be bothered to visit to place fresh flowers. However, each to there own.

Jean there are flowers in the bucket....stretched the pic on my iPad and they are flowers....cheers!!!

Jean F. That thing hanging out of the window cleaners bucket is his Chamois Leather!

Comment by: Garry on 8th December 2013 at 19:34

Genuine, great shot Kathleen...

Comment by: Paula on 8th December 2013 at 22:36

What I can see is a very unusual ( and interesting) shot including a square urn-type memorial which has been filled with flowers, may be real or artificial - who knows.?

It is definitely not a chamois leather hanging out !!

And obviously there is somebody who cares to visit occasionally

Hope nobody believed me when I answered Mick !!

Certainly couldn`t see what was in the bucket though,!
Fair play to someone if they were flowers.Cheers Lizzie x
