Great site. This is the only site that explains Wigan in detail that I have found. How about some pictures showing our beloved Wigan rugby team, and not so beloved Wigan Athletic football team? Please???

Moved to Pembroke Oct 1999, miss the place and thought I would show the Welsh why I keep talking about home all the time.
They did take the mick out of the Pier though.

Nice site, however I must take issue with you about the photograph "Hindley - Looking up Market Street c 1930" It appears to me from the late 1950's or early 60's as there are no tramlines or overhead wires, the streetlights appear to be sodium types and the light coloured car appears to be a Ford Popular or Prefect introduced about 1959

I've just looked at the clock, I've been here for nearly 2 hours!!A belter of a site, I've spent ages just looking at the photos. It's a shame about the forum but I guess there are idiots everywhere! If anyone has any info on the Ormandy family name Please feel free to mail me.

My great-grandparents (Bartons and Browns) came across at the turn of the century to mine coal here. My Great-Aunt Maudie lived to be 101 and told me stories about Wigan when I was a child. I hope to visit in the future - perhaps at the 100 year mark of my family's emmigration. I have saved this site to my favorite places! Thank you for the glimpse.

We sometimes feel homesick as we moved to Canada 10 months ago. It was great to see pictures of our home town and the Orwell, which is where we met. We have lots of memories from Wigan - hi to all our friends and family in Pemberton, Aspull, Standish Lwr Ground, Standish and Ashton. We miss Pooles pies, and the Rugby - good luck for the season.
