  Comments This is a most wonderful site! All my father's family come from Wigan and surrounding areas, and I had the great pleasure and privilege to live in Maghull for about a year in 1969. The very minute I win Lotto, I'm heading straight back to Liverpool!

  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.

  Comments My great Granndfather Peter Burgess lived in wigan from about 1889 until his death in 1951 at the age of 95. He had been born in Northwich but moved to Wigan via Gorton in Manchester where he married. He was a loco driver with - I think - the Great Central (he started work in 1873/4 and retired in 1921). Does anyone know of the railway links between Wigan and Gorton? Any photos of the Spring Street area?
Best wishes
