  Comments A really good site. It broughts lots of memories flooding back. I left Orrell, Wigan in 1969, but still did pretty good on your Wigan Speyk. Loved the pictures of the pubs. I was born and lived for 28 years only a hundred yards from the Old Engine in Kitt Green, one of your featured pubs.

We just found out that our GGrandparents are from around Wigan and Bolton. Hate to say I never heard of these places before and I think your Webpage sure bring me up-to-date. It is very exciting. Thank you so very much for all your hard work.

  Comments Nice Site, well laid out and easy to find way around.

I lived in Wigan for my first 23 years. I then lived around the Lancaster and Morecambe area. The past 13 years I've lived in York.

I go "home" often to see my family. I especially enjoy a pint in the 'Bowling Green'pub on Wigan Lane.

Cheers Everyone !
