Remember the two barges Emma & Netta wonder where they are now.

I always wanted to get a snapshot of 'Netta' to show my Auntie Netta,who's photo is on Album..she was lovely.

People used to queue for a long while to have a ride on the barges not knowing they only went from the Pier to the side of Trencherfield Mill

Remember "Claymore" 1970s.

It was real education, going into Wigan Pier Museum, especially the classroom, and having to add up, divide , and multiply, pounds, shillings, and pence. After several years of decimalisation. What has it now become?.

It's such a shame that the Wigan Pier museum and Orwell pub have been derelict for about a decade, and the two waterbuses stopped operating, only the Trencherfield Mill engine operates occasionally on Sundays and bank holidays. It's almost 33 years in March 1986 since the Queen and Prince Philip came to officially open the complex.

Albert,I went with my youngest lad to that classroom,he was a teenager at the time..and just to show how strict were the teachers and headmaster at that time..my Son said his palms were sweating...oh and the parlour where someone was laid in their coffin,we all stood around with our heads bowed..it seemed so real.

Wigan council will do doubt be making flats there now, so much for heritage. This lot dont care about things like that. All they care about is the revenue the flats will bring
