Lovely photo, Dennis.

My favourite place in and around Wigan, as I used to fish opposite those cottages when I was a youngster.

Cheers.

Nice peaceful scene, canal towpaths are good places to walk. That turns me to thinking does anyone one know where ' Can Row ' is or was ?

Can Row was next to the stream near Common Nook,in Ince near to Amberswood bridge.

Can Row near Common Nook sounds like a classy place to be brought up.

Nice photo Dennis, all the Autumn leaves changing colours.Used to love our walks down the canal. My mother in law used to talk about Can Row, Elizabeth in Ince.She spent a lot of time there as a young girl.

Its real street name was East View, Helen, but we Incers always knew it as Can Row.

I don't think Scholes had a Can Row but Westhoughton did at one time. It must be a throwback to the days of Cotton Mills and Pits. It would be interesting to know why...

It was VERY classy in Can Row, Mick....we didn't keep the coal in the bath....we kept it in the bidet!

For somebody born with a silver spoon in his mouth, you would think he would have had the benefit of a private education and learned to spell the the difference between their, there and they're.
On the other hand it could be another Mick and not the 'real' Mick !
Tread softly Irene....,there's too many Micks about at the moment.

I have great memories of growing up in Ince,playing in Ince Park and passing Common Nook and Can Row (East View) on the way there and back.

"But I, being poor, have only my dreams. I have spread my dreams under your feet. Tread softly, for you tread on my dreams"...Yeats....I LOVE that poem! I'll be careful, Dolly! Hope you had a good holiday. xx
