Interesting. Nothing on that pic was there when I lived in Wigan from the late thirties up to leaving in the early seventies. Although I lived there for forty years I bet I would get lost right away if I came back.
A lovely photo. Thank you.

anybody who has been away from wigan for the last 20 years or so would have a job recognising the place
the people who run the borough have made a right dogs dinner of it
it is sadly one of the worst shopping areas around,
even Leigh has a better market and shopping centre than we have
