I wonder how many people have walked on those cobbles.Came past the other day and it seems it is going to open as some sort of market

Pardon me, boy, were those the Powerbreaker Shovels? Track twenty-nine.

George Orwell, George Formby and Billy Boston walked over the cobbles

Has the name BULLDOG really gone forever or , has production moved elsewhere?

Pw heard it was going to be an artisan market, and yes they are original cobbles.

Mike, the Bulldog name is still going, and production continues in Wigan at their factory in Forge Street. The factory and warehouse was only completed last year.

Hmm, the rails don't look more than 2ft gauge. About the same as a pit tub, I think.
