Places (Help with places, streets and buildings in Wigan.)
GOLDEN BEAR, it may amuse you to know that all building work has been suspended on that site until they sort out the ground problems. Old shafts, old shallow mine workings, backfilled quarries, landfill sites, old sewage works and numerous illegal and unofficial tipping sites litter the area. they spent months before building doing ground stabilisation works such as removing tipped material and drilling and grouting old mine workings, but many more have been discovered. There are reports of new house foundations already sinking and cracking up.
