Photo-a-Day (Tuesday, 14th April, 2015)
It took me about ten seconds to get this one. Many years back (maybe 70)the houses did not have gardens, as shown, the farmers (Colliers) field sloped up to be just below the level of the kitchen windows, so it was not uncommon to have a cow look in the windows. Also that tree to the left, was just the sme when I was a lad, so how old is it??
Dukes Row Cottages, You'd think the photo was taken in Yorkshire. Very nice, Ron.
I think these are called town houses.
They are Terraced houses. Photo taken at the rear.
Nice picture Ron.
This vista belies the perception of Wigan.....cobble streets, mills and factory chimneys!
Nice shot Ron.
This is on Rightmove - lovely photos of the property.
Not sure if the link will work.
This distinctive row of houses used to be clearly visible from UpHolland on sunny days,
Weren't these cottages converted, 2 into 1 for the entire row?
Was that the row that had the leaning chimneys?
My several times great grandfather with a huge family lived in one of those, worked down the pit for his lordship.
A few years ago,and old pit shaft opened up in the back garden of one of these houses,a nice shot of them.
Remember delivering something to the last house right at the top end, there was the remains of a mine shaft in their garden and the coal board was filling it in, they said that umpteen lorry loads had been emptied down and it still wasn't full, there's a pit head wheel in the garden now.
