What do you mean...not there?!

It is now a car park

Helen of Troy: I understand how you feel Helen, people will pinch anything these days.

Does anyone know what this building was being used for at the time the photo was taken (early 1980s)?

Comments by Mick, 10th December 2017  
English Electric - it was still the town hall, and also Wigan Borough Magistrates Court.
Although different council departments (Education, Housing etc) had moved to other locations in the town, the Mayor's parlour and the Finance department were still here.

Its hardly conceivable that such a building could be left to rot and become the eyesore it did. Yet the building on the left at the end is now a lovely restaurant.

The centrepiece at the top with the 2 urns we're saved with dialogue between the former SAVE Wigan group and Wigan Council. These are well stored up at Kirkless ;-)
