were about was the hall?

Comments by Ian Bailey, 20th April 2010  
The Hall was at the end of Carr Lane, Marus Bridge. The lane still exists, as the main road through an estate, it was previously a rough pathway. I guess the Hall was demolished in the late 60's early 70's

it must have been demolished in the late 60's as i grew up on the estate and used to play in the ruins of the hall and all over the fields and around the flashes

My family moved to Wigan in 1969 the hall was approximately
300 yard from the road and facing the shops, it was still lived in then.

My mother's mother was a Gore and her ancestors lived in the Hall and farmed pre-1899. I gather it was a communal sort of life with various parcels of land attached farmed by residents in the hall which were several families at the same time. My ancestors were Gores

Ron I've said on another photo that a girl who lived here was in our class at St Joseph's in the late forties.

I remember playing here as a Child with my Friends, Ian & Derek Finch, Linda Madden, Billy Kelly among other Friends. My Mum sent me an old cutting from the Wigan Observer a few years ago where I was mentioned along with some other Friends from School (st. Jameses) who helped clean the stream and surrounding area up. This photo brings back some very fond memories. Thank you so much for posting this picture and bringing all my memories flooding back.
