  Comments This is a very good site about Wigan. I reckon it could be vastly improoved by including details of local events, music bands, and any other ttopical things.

  Comments Looking at wiganworld, so much of Wigan seems to have disappeared. Can anyone tell me if the Hippodrome is still there, probably not, went there as a child saw Betty Driver ( Betty Turpin in Corrie ) in a pink tulle dress, blonde hair, playing a white piano, she had a poodle on stage with her, also on the bill was Ronald Chesney who threw small harmonica's out into the audience. Also is the building of the Wigan Mining & Technical College still standing ? My Grandfather Thomas Bryson was a lecturer in mining there.
I love looking at wiganworld !

  Comments I was interested in more info on Wigan in general, and Wigan FC specifically, after I saw the stories about the Lactics being promoted. It made me curious about the place and, from what I can tell, it seems like a fine community. I'm curious to come see it on my next trip across the pond. Perhaps I can take in a fixture, too.

I linked over to Wigan Times, too. I was especially taken with Keith Guest's Around't Kitchen Table column. What a hoot. I'd love to buy that man a pint or two. Be worth it for the stories.

Best regards!

  Comments I notice the first bricks were dislodged of Wigans last great land mark. The Ritz has only a matter of days before all traces are gone. I was there with camera and camcorder to record thie great loss.

Have gathered quite a lot of footage and photos, inside and out, when finally edited together will send you a dvd copy.

Great site, if only more were as interested in Wigan's great past.

Anthony Mason
