It seems that Wigan is getting to be the worlds best at obliterating history. What is history anyway? Only old memories of old things,but hey can tug at the heart lots of times.
Bulldozer Bill and Co. strike again.
If they carry on at this rate, nowt will be left of Wigan. Historic buildings in and around Wigan should be preserved not destroyed- with a few swings of a bulldozer and a prefabricated so called building erected in its place.
Just look at our Railways.....
I wholeheartedly agree with Colin Harlow. Wigan is not the town that I knew I think that they have taken all the character away with the few swings of a bulldozer What a great shame......
They won't be happy until they've erased every scrap of our town's character and individuality so we look just the same as everywhere else. In a while, it won't even be worth having a ride to neighbouring towns for a day out...they'll all be identical!
Progress?... I don't think so!
I really get annoyed when I see beautiful buildings like that being pulled down,buildings with character,they're not telling me that's not worth saving,It's all about money and I agree with everybody who's replied on here,I think someones got a death wish on Wigan town centre.
Save our town! Wigan For Ever.
I do not think there is now any hope of that, Pat.
Whenever I come home it just looks to me that it has all been done haphazardly.. without a thought of planning. It just looks like a bit here and a bit there.
I cannot forgive them for desroying the Little Arcade. Lets hope they all get better jobs soon... like thousands of miles away.
I agree totally with Tricia. The little arcade had more character than any other place in Wigan, or anywhere else I have been. Very good comments from others also. Just one thing to do, boys and girls...JOIN the Save Wigan Campaign and make you voice heard to the powers that be.
I'm you Tricia and Fred. Little Arcade is etched in my mind forever..
