Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 7th November, 2009)
Photo is fine Brian but the building sticks out like a sore thumb, really out of character with the area.
Modern Wigan looks very nice and it looks like you have caught a pizza delivery boy on his scooter going past.
HAVE HEARD THEY ARE 'DEAD GOOD' !!!!
I haven't lived in Wigan for some years. I'm trying to place this spot!
It used to be MIDDELTON AND WOODS.Just before you get to The Pier nightclub.
Thanks for the info BREN I never would have guessed it was there.
What an eyesore!
I think a bit of red brick would have worked wonders !
What is this countrywide fasination with royal blue & it would have been better if the architects had have taken other buildings into consideration... well whats left standing of course...... still if the pizzas are good.......
Have heard it's haunted !! pizza's deliver themselves !!!! no wonder there are so many ufo sightings over Wigan lately !!
I believe the architect was recently savaged to death by his guide dog.
Looks like its made of Dominoes and all double blanks.
I say it is bright and cheerful . Two prisoners looked through the prison bars .One saw mud ,the other saw stars.
Well said Ron D !! It not at all bad looking.
As it used to be a very revered Funeral Parlour, maybe upstairs is reserved for the Wigan Councillors who have destroyed the character of Wigan over the last 40 odd years?
Can anyone tell me what's upstairs? Residential, offices, etc?
Do they serve spirits,
Is it where Egerton House used to be?
yes david, the chapel of rest was there. GOD REST IN PIZZA !!!!
It looks awful! How on earth did this facade get approved! The 'Wigan Pier Quarter' suggests it is historical connections, or at least sympathy with it's surroundings.
It's horrible none of it fits in with Trencherfield Mill
I was born right there. 1 Egerton Street.
