I hope Wigan can fill a 60 bedroom hotel that looks like a box. What an awful bit of architecture !

This eyesore transfomation plus the town hall site being demolished and something being done with the so called Tower Grand site should make this area a whole lot better!

I too have been in those cells on quite a few occasions Jonno, though spraying for insects mind, the occupants somehow didn't like spending their time locked up in them along with the beetles and woodlice that crawled in from the tunnel that led to the courts.

I remember following a woman prisoner round from Leigh police station cells, Wigan police station cells and the cells in the courts at the town hall, this was to spray after she had left as she was infested with lice.
