  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.

  Comments Great site! My good friend in Wigan told me quite a bit about the place. Mainly the pubs (just kidding, Sue!). It was nice being able to see so many pictures of Wigan. If I ever get there I'll be able to show HER the town now.

  How did you find wiganworld?    a wigan resident sent the site to me
 
  Comments The first thing I noticed was the amount of pubs located in the area. I guess there is nothing else to do in Wigan. In one of the pictures I thought I saw Charles and Camilla having an argument. It was outside a church so I knew it wasn't them. I do not see any castles or knights in shining armor. This is England, right???? Oh well, after seeing all the technology, I suppose this is the reason why we won the American Revolution.

  Comments I'm really enjoying browsing through the site, there is so much to see I will have to keep coming back, I hope to dig out some of my pictures of Wigan and contribute to the picture pages.
Uncle Joe's Mint Balls always feature, and as an ex emloyee of the factory I created a mail order service with it's own web site at www.mintballs.co.uk - to stop ex Wiganers all over the UK and beyond, suffering the pangs of MBD - now known as an extreme medical condition called Mintball Ball Deprivation. I'll try and answer any queries about UJMBs.
Good luck with a great site.

  Comments Colin Burgess had posted a message and I found him through that. I used to be involved with Wigan Jazz Club, and the Folk Club at the Park Hotel. See Keth Roberts's message. We met up last weekend at the Old Ashtonians reunion, a great weekend. It sparked a few memories and I've been looking up one or two old friends. Anybody remember me???
I used to be the compere at Wigan Folk Club in the sixties, then went off on the Hippie Trail to India. I've done a few things since then which may be of passing interests to one or two old friends, if any of you pick
this up.
