  Comments Hi Tommy.I remember the name but can't put a face to it.I grew up in York Street and it is so sad that very few photos are to be seen of all those streets.I suppose we saw the beginning of the end when the demolishers moved in.The very last house I lived in was in Appleton Street and was demolished before I reached the end of the street with my belongings.The Chap with the ball and chain was about to take a swing before I got out.We spent our last night there gazing at the stars through a huge crack in the wall.

  Comments to TOMMY BUTLER. I was born in herbert st. on the corner with miry lane. ive so many memories of that time in my life and all good ones; remember MAGGIE MUSCLE? Always walking down wallgate sozzled;she were banned off the buses. and maggie bella? a quaint old soul dragging tomato boxes behind her? the punch and judy man on the "park" in herbert st? my grans were the woodcocks do you know them? a devoted couple. the houses have gone now sadly in the name of progress??? but these happy memories stay with me always. ps remember gallaghers bone works in summer? PHWOAR! smell it for miles! :0)

  Comments I have just discovered a little known fact that Wiganers should know. Dave Whelan has put in a bid to host the 2012 Olympic Games in Wigan. I quote : " The Mastermind behind the bid is Dave Whelan, a local entrepreneur who made his money selling training shoes, Subbuteo accessories and dartboards." ( search for 'whelan rockall times' to see for yourself ! ). I hope he is successful, he's a hero. Shame he's a Yorkshireman.

  How did you find wiganworld?    It's a good site, ten out of ten.
  Comments Hey, isn't it ironic eh. ? There are no Wiganers playing for Wigan Athletic, the chairman is from Yorkshire and the team is managed by a Scouser. No wonder they're up there in the top division and doing a grand job of it too !

  Comments Dr. Winston, I couldn't agree with you more re: bridge over Leigh Canal at Poolstock being an accident waiting to happen. It is clearly ill thought out and an obvious danger zone. Now, if you look at Wigan M.B.C. website you will see that the idiots have awarded themselves a 'Top Environmental Award' for that bit of stupidity. How is permission ever granted for this sort of obstructive work ? My opinion is this, They will create that much congestion into and out of Wigan as an excuse to start a 'congestion charge' and then, guess what, nobody will ever go there !

  Comments To Susan Heaton----There is a photo of Jack Heaton & his wife on Albums/Sports/ Wigan rugby (9). This was taken about 1959.
They migrated to Canada a few years later. Hope this may help in some way.
