Park Lane Chapel


Park Lane Chapel
Park Lane Chapel, Wigan Road, Landgate. Built in 1697 and is still in use today. The recently deceased organist played there for 58 years. Worth a look at this lovely Chapel.

Just to say that I am enjoying your photographs of Ashton and surrounding area, You are giving us a good insight into this district of Wigan. Thank you.

Pat, What makes you think Ashton in Makerfield is a district of Wigan. It certainly is not.

Comment by: Cath on 14th October 2007 at 14:17

Colin, If Ashton in Makerfield is not a district of Wigan, Why is the local council Wigan MBC?

Comment by: Pat on 14th October 2007 at 14:21

Sorry, I stand corrected - but just who does it belong to, then?

Comment by: Colin on 14th October 2007 at 22:43

It 'belongs to' Ashton in Makerfield. It is a member township of a 'Metropolitan Borough', along with many other townships, Wigan being one of them. Ashton in Makerfield is a 'stand alone' urban area. Wigan is a town. In Wigan.

Dont worry about it Pat. I was 'corrected' after calling a narrowboat a barge.

Thank you John, for your reassurance, and also to Cath, who thought as I did!!
What is wrong with being part of Wigan, anyway?

Comment by: Colin on 17th October 2007 at 12:30

There's nothing wrong with being part of Wigan and I didn't infer that there is. After all, I am from Wigan. But, Ashton in Makerfield just isn't.
May I ask, what's wrong with Bryn being part of Ashton in Makerfield, which it is? Why does it have to be part of Wigan, which it isn't?

Lets just say Ashton-in-Makerfield is Near Wigan. That's what I put on address labels

Indeed it is, Tony!

Comment by: Colin on 19th October 2007 at 14:37

Although, Tony, I wouldn't like to walk it with a hole in my shoe.
