I was born and bred in Wigan on Norley Hall Estate. I left to go to Australia in September 1967. In December 2020 Ive moved back to Wigan permanently and look forward to seeing all my family and friends when the Covid restrictions are over. Its great to be back with family and old friends, and I look forward to making new friends very soon

Trying to trace my family tree... Anyone have any information on Edmondson / Watkinsons (great great grandparents) who used to run the Black Swan, 112 Scholes Street in the late 1800s... Also information on Henry Farr & Sons... Alderman Harry Farr (my great great uncle)... Would be great to get any old photos of Farr & Sons and Black Swan pub... Thanx... and it's a great website...

Hello.

My name’s Phill and I produce a podcast with my 90 year old mother-in-law. The podcast is called Mondays with Milly.

“Milly” (her real name is Doreen) ran the Bush Inn in Wigan for two years in the 1960s and she talks about it at-length in this episode in case anyone is interested. Here’s the link:

https://anchor.fm/phill-cristofaro0/episodes/S3-Ep2-Would-you-like-to-run-a-Pub-eopav3

I think it’s a really important piece of social history and such a rich story.

You can find the podcast wherever you source your podcasts.

Thank you for maintaining this site. I’ll be sharing it with Milly.

I am posting this question here as I dont know where else to ask it. It concerns Wigan Mining & Tecnical College in the late 1940s. Does anyone who attended the college or has any knowledge remember a lecturer in mining, Ernest Mason. Ernest also wrote some books on practical mining subjects in the 1950s. Any info appreciated.
