Love Aspull,my favourite area around Wigan and District.

They’ll need those big windows at the front because they won’t be able to see anything at the back.

Whereabouts in Aspull is this Dennis.

Veronica, the photo is of the back of the house, the front faces the trees.

All I know Phil is they are too near…. A bit like my garden at the side. Every year they grow more taller and more dense. Lovely in the distance though…

Veronica, you're back to front.

Comment by: Joan on 8th August 2022 at 11:56

Trees on one  side  and a telegraph pole on the other, so I cant see where a lovely view is going to be seen.
It's also got very small dingy windows just  like my house, we asked years ago to have our window made bigger but the answer was no, they said because we live a spectacular area  of Appley Bridge, which overlooks the river Douglas and  lovely Douglas valleys amazing sunsets

They will be able to see a large part of Lancashire from those upstairs windows.

Comment by: Veronica on 8th August 2022 at 12:41

I’m not backward at coming forward though George…

It may be the trees are not as close has they appear, anyway when everything is finished, it should have nice views.

I've worked in a house near there, in a road called 'The Fields'. Yes, they'll have a nice view from the back windows. They will not, however, be able to see Lancashire.

The trees are on Bolton Road Kath H.

That area is part of the Mersey basin so they will get a view downhill in that direction. I imagine their view of Lancashire will be blocked by the old slag heap?

Comment by: Jeanette on 8th August 2022 at 21:22

Mersey basin ,don't think so !!!! Oh how some like to gloat on here.By the way have Joan and Mick ever been seen in the same room? Just saying.... ..

Comment by: George (Hindley) on 8th August 2022 at 22:54

Jeanette, yes, Aspull is in the Mersey drainage basin as is Hindley. Borsdane Brook runs at the back of my house and the Mersey Rivers Trust are often visiting.

Comment by: DTease on 9th August 2022 at 07:22

I’m upset now George, it seems I have been living in The Mersey Drainage Basin all these years and I have never had a single visit from The Mersey Rivers Trust. Is it something I said I wonder?
Mind you, the missis often says that her kitchen sink looks like the Mersey Basin after I’ve made a brew…or is it a brow?
How many Mersey rivers are there anyway? I thought there was just the one!

They'll not call at yours for a cuppa, DTease, because they know you use Aldi teabags.

Comment by: DTease on 10th August 2022 at 00:25

Aldi teabags! Aldi teabags! George? Luxury!! When I were a lad George one teabag had to do the whole family. One dip was all you got! One dip and then pass it on to the next one.
A teabag each? Luxury!!

Comment by: Veronica on 10th August 2022 at 12:06

Then I bet tea bags were thrown on’t garden if there was any goodness left in ‘em I imagine… grow your own tea bags! Help the country….

Comment by: DTease on 10th August 2022 at 15:33

My owd Mam didn't waste nowt, Veronica. She even saved wrapping paper from Christmas fert use ont next Christmas!

Comment by: Veronica on 10th August 2022 at 16:33

That generation saved everything Dtease from brown paper, string, buttons etc anything at all. Everything had a use, it must have stemmed from the war when stuff was hard to get. Not like todays ‘throwaway society’.

Comment by: George (Hindley) on 10th August 2022 at 21:44

Last time I spoke to the Mersey Rivers people, they said a big problem was the ‘throwaway society' people 'throwing away' their garden waste into the brook, which adds to the potential flooding problem.
