Great map! Do you know where I could get hold of a copy of the map. I have family in 'Old Cloth Hall' , a slum area north of King street, roughly opposite the post office. I'd be interested in seeing more of that area. Thanks

I am pretty sure the History Shop/ Museum of Wigan Life on Library Street has this. They may be able to provide you with a copy

Thanks for your reply Neil, all I could have told Carol is that it came from the internet.

Carol if the History Shop can't help you get back to me, I may be able to help
