If we or the council or English Heritage don't do something it will look like that again.

Carl,
Surely it`s the councils responsibility.

Comments by Poet, 27th November 2017  
Do you recall the franking on envelopes stating
"There's no pier in modern Wigan"?
Have the council altered their view?
Shame really! This should be a Mecca for boaters nationwide.

Is it not totally incredible that Wigan cannot find a useful future for the Wigan Pier area?

Poet: It was "Modern Wigan has no Peer"!

Comments by Poet, 27th November 2017  
Thanks for putting me right AP

I believe the buildings are owned by the Canal and river trust. The rents they were demanding for the pub and the museum were extortionate and the reason for their closures.
