Photo is fine Brian but the building sticks out like a sore thumb, really out of character with the area.

Modern Wigan looks very nice and it looks like you have caught a pizza delivery boy on his scooter going past.

I think a bit of red brick would have worked wonders !
What is this countrywide fasination with royal blue & it would have been better if the architects had have taken other buildings into consideration... well whats left standing of course...... still if the pizzas are good.......

I believe the architect was recently savaged to death by his guide dog.

Well said Ron D !! It not at all bad looking.

As it used to be a very revered Funeral Parlour, maybe upstairs is reserved for the Wigan Councillors who have destroyed the character of Wigan over the last 40 odd years?

Can anyone tell me what's upstairs? Residential, offices, etc?

Is it where Egerton House used to be?
Comment by bren on 13th November 2009 at 19:13

It looks awful! How on earth did this facade get approved! The 'Wigan Pier Quarter' suggests it is historical connections, or at least sympathy with it's surroundings.

It's horrible none of it fits in with Trencherfield Mill
