  Comments hi i work at Bambooza in wigan (formally known as Yates and Addisons) and was just wondering why in the pictures of Wigan pubs there isn't a picture of us. Do we not count or something? Can someone get back to me and tell me why this has happened? Thanx

  How did you find wiganworld?    Looking for Billinge on Google.
  Comments Thank you - this is a wonderful find. Some time ago I discovered my 3xg.grandfather, Thomas Snape and his wife Nancy brought up their family in Billinge from 1770 but have only recently discovered that Nancy's surname was Martlew and they married in Ashton in Makerfield and had 2 children before moving to Billinge.
Some of those wonderful old buildings look as if they were there way back then.
I'm having a wonderful time browsing. Thanks again.
