A rather nice sign of horse and child - a reminder of the days when Failsworth was a village surrounded by farm land.

@Inlemay it is quite a built up working class housing area with some nice parkland and a canal cutting through its heart

@arthurchappell sounds like it has kept some of its village tranquility as you expressed in your post.

That's a lovely sign. I found this post on the side section. I was still away when it was first posted.

Horse enthusiasts will love this place that is if they can afford a pint after blowing it at the track.
