Very nice Ernest....Now, who's going to post a view taken from the top of the "Eye"??

Where is the policeman on point duty ? Last time I was there he was waving the traffic around.

Yesterday's Wigan Observer's front page had a pic of what the area will look like after yet another expensive revamp. A water feature is included - when the stated idea is to create a better open space for events.

Well done Pyke, I like the way you have caught the road repair barriers in your snap.

Nice shot Ernest . The Betfred shop was the Meadow Dairy grocers when I worked around the corner at Lowes 1960.


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 23rd October 2014 at 15:32
Is this permanent feature now?doesn`t look right.
When I first saw it...I too thought where is the policeman?
I remember the meadow dairies well and that was in the 50`s.Did it really survive into the 6o`s? it was a great food store ...none of this ready packed stuff.all was cut and sliced as you wanted it.Lowes was a grand store too has that been "taken over" also? just remembered super "ccol" coffe shop above meadow dairies Just around the start of the Coffee bar craze.Oh happy memories !!
