Good shot, hey, mind your eyebrows.

Just a flash in the pan.

Great shot, looks like a model town from this vantage point. I recognise the bridge over troubled water pub, or whatever it,s called. I think the event was on the 28th Sept. no doubt Jim Latham will verify it cos he went into town that day.

Wow. Split-second timing after a 360 year wait...

It's a view I've never seen before!

I didn't realise there were so many blocks of flats in the Scholes area. Am I correct in thinking the flats are in the Scholes area?
Lovely photo by the way!

And a jolly good time was had by all. I love those town centre organised events. I think Wigan has made a good job in this respect.
Derek, sorry but you'll miss a very nice Christmas Lunch at "The Wheel" which is part of Wigan Tech. The meal is prepared, cooked and served by students. No doubt we will have a few pints afterwards in ---- you've guessed it--- The Moon under Water.
Right, back to the photo, a great shot. Wigan looks fine but does anyone know what happened to the mosaic text which referred to Our King Henry III, who granted Wigan its Charter in 1246.

A good shot of a shot Andrew, excellent timing.

I drove past those flats in "Scholes Village" this afternoon - the newly-applied white exterior cladding is turning green with mould/ moss.

The gun-shot fire looks superimposed to me...

Sorry it's a little late with this photo, folks, but as it's a rather unique vantage point I thought it was worth sharing.

Gary, no superimposing here fella, just a 'proper' photo - whatever that is!
