This is Wigan

Not had chance to put a few pictures I took on a recent day out at Haigh Hall, Wigan and thought I'd share them today.

It was one of those wonderful last minute decisions, the weather was beautiful and we just wanted to nip somewhere nearby for a pleasant walk.

We decided to park outside the Infirmary and just walk through the plantations to the Hall, grab an ice cream and walk back through the plantations.

The walk to the hall through the plantations is about 4 miles there and back, you can read a little more about Haigh Hall here


The plantations are lined with so many Rhododendron bushes and pools of bluebells, Honey Bee and the Little Man couldn't resist hiding amidst one of the many batches of blue.

 Haigh Hall is surrounded by 250 acres of park and woodland and the Grade II listed Hall dates back to 1840, you can feel the history as you walk through such established woods and huge trees.

  lots of places to explore
enjoy a little rest

and relax

It's easy to forget such wonderful places that are on your doorstep.
