The Wigan Directory of 1869, Aspull

ASPULL is a township having an area of 1,879 acres, and in 1861 its population was 4,290; being at the rate of about 1,450 to the square mile. It contains the villages of Aspull, Aspull moor, Dicconson mill, and Pennington-green. In Aspull there is a marshy land or moor that is common land, but its limits are gradually being reduced by coal-pits and buildings. The Wigan Coal and Iron Co. are the principal coal owners, but Messrs. William Woods and Son (Henry Woods, Esq., M.P.) have cannel pits in the township. Lord Kingsdown built a church at Pennington-green in 1859, and the Roman Catholics, Wesleyans, and Independents also have places of worship in the township.
