What a memory! Congratulations on the whole series. I used to walk this bit of the canal to school (many years ago). Good shot of Eckersley's cotton mill in the background, with shortened chimney, due to safety regulations. Plenty of facts & photo's about Eckersleys, which employed thousands of people at one time, on 'Wiganworld' site, if you're interested, plus many about Wigan Pier. Must retain this heritage, or our grandchildren won't know about it.
