WIGAN TECH.8 Comments

Item #: 31920
I remember seeing a photograph of The Queen going into the building with all the dignitaries when she visited Wigan.
Dare I ask....is it still in one piece, still standing ?
Shall we take bets on it ?!
Helen.it is still standing and, as you would expect, over the years modernisation and various additions have been added to the complex.
Weren't Wigan Tech great! I preferred the old building though.
I,like Ron Hunt, went next door to the Thomas Linacre, I have sat in lessons staring trough the window watching this place being built, 1954/55. Yes Veronica I was 10 yards from the Queen when she was driven through those gates.
Thats a a relief DerekB !
You were lucky Roy, I was stood in Wallgate and only got a glimpse of the Queen in the big black car, after walking from St Patrick's along the canal to get to the spot we were allocated. So disappointed!
