Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 12th November, 2014)
Trouble with bridges is that you can soon get lost when you cross them.
I remember I was once deep in a Malaysian rain forest and went across a old bridge and ended up lost, missis went mad
It's not the bridge's fault Mick, it's you.
"The Yellow Brook"
is it a tributary of The Yellow River?
Another non-comment from you again Mick regarding the particular subject on view. It's a pleasant enough photo David, but it doesn't do a lot for me, sorry.
Jonno the photo might not do a lot for you because of your boring narrow mind
But like I have said its reminded me of getting lost when I crossed a little wooden bridge.
BTW way Jonno the bridge and the crossing point of the yellow brook is a historical part of Wigan and must hold so many memories of all Wiganers
Mick, go back to the doctor the tablets are not working.
Mick i dont have a narrow and boring mind, at least i commented on Davids photo. Why didn't you give the history etc in your original post instead of tales of your 'travels'. It would appear to me that you can give it but not take it.
Try again (crash). Jonno , I personally did not find Mick's first contribution a non comment as you suggest, each to their own.
Mick, I,ve never heard of yellow brook and would welcome insight and the history you mention.
Thanks David. Love the different angles
As per Jonno? Eddiep .. Pointless!!
Nowt wrong with Mick's comments.
Its Jonno who wants to stare things up.
Jonno go back to where you have come from Ive spent far to much time answering you.
Yes i've guessed right Mick, you like to run the show dont you? I haven't been anywhere by the way, i've been reading your inane comments for a long time now before deciding to get involved, as you know, i am not on my own regarding your comments. I'll leave you alone for today.
Now, now boys;No quarreling on photo a day!
Personally,I liked this contribution.
Karen I think the brook was so called because it ran from the dye works and the water carried the dye colour which was usually a mucky mustard colour and so called yellow brook, I played down there in the 50,s, it is so different now, there was another photo on last week someone talked about the devils cavern it was actually called the devils cave when I was little and only a few minutes walk from the bridge. So many memories when I look at these photos well done they are great.
Mavis was it not called yellow because of the iron ore that was coming out of the coal mines.
Up here in sunny Shevy we have a brook called calico because its yellow and flows from a old coal mine.
Stare Garry, do you mean stir? No i dont, just saying what other people think.
And who are the other people who are doing the thinking and where do they gather jonno mmmmm
Nice to see a photo of Dean Wood, I have not been there for many years.
Just refer to last Sundays photo Mick, you'll see what i mean.
Dean Wood A.W. ?
I always thought the name was because of the yellow ochre or hydrated iron oxide which came from the colliery - can't think of the name - across the railway line.
Thanks Mavis. Is this in Dean Wood? Yellow Brook, Devils Cavern, add a few elves , fairies and witches and there's a book there.
Oops a daisy.......best not to comment at all!
Jean F, ?
This is BOTTLING WOOD...not DEAN WOOD..I walk over this bridge every day....also it was the iron ore that made it run yellow.
midlife crisis anyone
haha, oh dear, so lazy!!!
Good photo of the new bridge, remember to old one...no rails, just as simple slab of stone. Used to play there everyday when I visited my gran In Rosemary Cresent
