Is the tavern in millgate? I thought Chapel Lane only started at the building behind the lamp post, when I worked there in the 50's it was Wigan Print

Douglas Tavern was on the corner of Douglas Street and the top of Chapel Lane. They met at the bottom of the hill on Millgate where it sweeps round towards Scholes Bridge. It would now be sat on Riverway across grom the bottom of Millgate. My mother lived there as a young girl long after it had ceased to be a pub.
