Good photo, it had me fooled for a few seconds. I thought it was the view of Standishgate again. It looks remarkably like that, but sanity prevailed.

Pemberton change a lot over many years, new building were the old police station used to be.
The Pemberton of the 50's and 60's was very different.

Used to walk up to top of Pem every day giving all the shop women the eye when I was working at Pem caravans.
We only got half an hour for dinner but could manage to scoff down chips and pudding or else chips and fish or else chips and pie and then do the top of Pem walk.

Lovely shot, Neil.
That's where I grew up in the fifties. Doesn't the 'cop shop' look good now but the old one had a lot of character. I think that Pemberton has been renewed over the years, as has Wigan centre but Pem has kept it's character for some reason.

Used to live in Beaford Close, a few hundred yards from this road. Oh how it's changed. There used to be a record shop down the left somewhere. Long gone now no doubt. Thanks Neil, brings back memories.

Had to make a second comment.
What great posts above, especially Bradshaws Girl. Just shows what an impression Pem has made on us all.
