Nice peaceful picture Mick.

Good to see the "old home town" on COUNTRYFILE last night.

Nice photo Mick. Seems someone else was admiring the scene.

Jean; Why were items in Countryfile yesterday split into sections? I`d recorded it and after viewing the `lost garden`at the start, I nearly switched off. Good job I didn`t as there were two more separate parts shown later.
It doesn`t make sense to me as surely each item should be dealt with just the once.
I last visited this `lost garden` about 20 years ago and it wasn`t as overgrown. There is a lake and this wasn`t shown.
Mick; Not seen this lake - when did you take the photo and where is your bike?

Ernest I took it last week and Im sat on my bike.

Countryfile didnt show Liverpool castle folly, have you seen that one Ernest.

If you havent I just put on a couple of videos of the Japanese Gardens and the Castle on the Forum section

Thanks Mick. Have just watched your video`s. Don`t remember seeing Liverpool castle folly.
I thought these gardens shown on Countryfile were lacking in the size of them.
Your video`s showed more of them and in far greater detail

Ernest Liverpool castle is not up on the hill, its on the left just after Rivington high school Rivington lane.

A loverly beauty spot soon to be ruined by the link road.I do believe that when the snow and frost are i the tree's it just looks like Banff in Canada.Take a look next time it is really cold.
