Restoration ? That must be a first for Wigan, it seems things mainly get knocked down !!

Sorry about that, feeling a bit cheeky today !

A great and much needed improvement . Previously it was an absolute eyesore, the first building visitors to Wigan were meet with. What a terrible impression it gave. Hopefully a similar scheme can be devised for The Grand Hotel , which is also a blot on the landscape . Well done Rachel,for highlighting the transformation .

Nice to see this bit of Wigan being given a make over, makes a better impression for people getting off the train!

has anyone ever stayed there? I looked at it once when searching for B& B as it's a great location for stations and town.

Glad to see Wigan Council looking after the unemployed and too ill to work people of our town. Mind you if it hadn't been for these people the place would have closed years ago just like many other pubs have. So well done and have a drink on me lads....oh aye you have been doing for years, only fools and horses eh.
