  Comments Nice Site, well laid out and easy to find way around.

I lived in Wigan for my first 23 years. I then lived around the Lancaster and Morecambe area. The past 13 years I've lived in York.

I go "home" often to see my family. I especially enjoy a pint in the 'Bowling Green'pub on Wigan Lane.

Cheers Everyone !
