Photo-a-Day (Thursday, 3rd September, 2015)
I knew where this was before I looked at the comments. Dairy Pit is about 10 to 200 yds behond the bridge on the opposite side from the towpath. Good photo Ron.
A very peaceful photo, Ron.
The Green bridge still looks good after being refurbished,
They want to to the same with the Seven Stars bridge on the canal in Wallgate because that one is in really a bad condition
I've stood on that bridge thousands of times and my Dad used to work at the Dairy Pit in the 1950's.
Thank you so much for a lovely memory, sailing along this part of the canal on a lovely summer Sunday and meeting really Great Wiganers.
A great photo Ron.
That is just a brilliant photo Ron, Thanks!
I see some of the leaves on the trees are starting to turn yellow, a sign of Autumn. After saying that, Autumn shares some lovely colours that are stunning to see.
Nice one Ron.
Bit of everything in this photo Ron,very nice.My dad worked at the Dairy Pit Kath in the 50s, I put a photo on albums under sport ,there's a fishing match on the pit is in the background.Also another under work in albums Alexander /Dairy pit.
that's where I learned to swim 50 years ado, along with half of wigan
Thank you for this photo Ron, it is wonderful to see, especially for someone who left Wigan many years ago and still thinks of Wigan as home.
Is this a little bit of Heaven on earth?
Thanks David. I looked at the photos you suggested of the Dairy Pit. Unfortunately my Dad wasn't on, but I did recognise some of the faces. When my Dad was on night shift, I used to walk down the line with him on Fridays, when he received his wages, and took them home to my Mam. We lived in St David's Crescent, and I went to Aspull Sec. Did you?
Ron....have you seen the swan with the cracked beak recently ??? .I do hope that it's not come to a sad end
Bren Not seen cracked beak for some while no idea what's happened.
