What a superb house, here is the entry from the 1881 Directory
Smith James, slate and coal merchant, 27 King st.; residence, Douglas Bank House
This house is a real beauty and what a good clear photo.
Stunning property, Mr Latham must have had a few quid. Great photo.
Is this the house at the top of Leyland mill lane /Wigan Lane??? Which is slowly crumbling away?
This house was demolished several years ago, and the accountancy company Fairhurst now have offices on this site.
Didn't this become at one time the first, or one of the first, old people's homes run by Wigan Council?
The house wasn't demolished but extended. You can still clearly see its external features.
I've got a map from the fantastic Scottish map site. It shows Bank House on the opposite side of the road. Map dates 1888-1913. I'll try to put a screen shot on but this is the website address. What do you think? http://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/#zoom=17&lat=53.5610&lon=-2.6318&layers=171
