What an absolutely beautiful and dramatic scene.
It certainly looks extremely cold. Brrrrrr.

Well done Poet

I rode down Langtree lane last week, I turned around when the hard path run out.

Beautiful. I hope Poet will take the same view one beautiful day in the Summer. It would be lovely to see them side by side.

Poet, a beautiful image of winter, I have to say it again, just beautiful.

Maureen, it was a row of houses down an entry between 128 and 130 Ince Green Lane, next door to what I knew as "Little Amy's shop", just further down from St. William's church and on the other side of the road. I don't recall it at all so maybe it had gone when I was a child.

ps....Maureen...go on Wigan Album. then go to "street scenes" and scroll down the alphabetical list to Aldred's Yard . Click on that and and there is a photo of the rent-collector collecting rents there.

Linma , its near the mini roundabout at the junction of Preston Road and Pepper Lane . The Quaker burial ground is roughly opposite .
