  Comments I was very pleased to be able to 'view' Wigan and found it very interesting, as I have never visited. My gt. grandfather worked at Pepper Mill Foundry..supposed to have cast the tenor bell for Rheims Cathedral.
WELL DONE WIGAN at Murrayfield on Saturday, my son and daughter went and supported the team.

  Comments Brilliant site full of interesting information including family pics. Nice to see how they're going to spoil the next bit of our heritage with the Grand Arcade!
Both born and bred in Wigan and missing it already, brings back warm memories.

  Where are you? Hindley Green
  How did you find wiganworld?    Google
  Comments Nice site, however I must take issue with you about the photograph "Hindley - Looking up Market Street c 1930" It appears to me from the late 1950's or early 60's as there are no tramlines or overhead wires, the streetlights appear to be sodium types and the light coloured car appears to be a Ford Popular or Prefect introduced about 1959

  Comments My great-grandparents (Bartons and Browns) came across at the turn of the century to mine coal here. My Great-Aunt Maudie lived to be 101 and told me stories about Wigan when I was a child. I hope to visit in the future - perhaps at the 100 year mark of my family's emmigration. I have saved this site to my favorite places! Thank you for the glimpse.
