It's good to see that the planners have provided very good gardens for those bungalows,there's nowt like it outside your own back-door.
great photo of Scholes with not a chimney or cobble in sight! from the imposing 'Wuchy' in the distance to the busy Sams Bar car park in the foreground - with Boddies bitter at £1.60 a pint what do you expect!
The car park at Sams Bar is used by workers daily. They charge £1.40 for a full day's parking. That's why it is full.
what a dump. is this picture really going to attract investors, tourists or anyone with a real view of the outside world? i was born and raised in wigan, i left when i was 23 and i've never looked back since. it's a pathetic little town and an embarrassment to the north west of england. actually it's an embarrassment to the civilised world. what kind of town prides itself on scores of pubs, a corrupt rugby team and a football team with lower attendances than teams in lower divisions? why not spend all that money on schools and wigan and leigh college? it's the only way you'll drop the image of 'small working class town on the governments poverty map'.
