  Comments I'm coming to Wigan in March 2002 to see a close friend. Just wanted to "do some homework" in advance. Your site is excellent, I enjoyed the pictures and I'm very impressed with the beauty and history of the town.
Thanks for the info., I really look forward to seeing Wigan firsthand! :)

  Comments Nice site but you are using the wrong town crest. Yours is the Metro crest that includes Atherton, Tyldesley, Leigh etc, towns in their own right that are nothing to do with Wigan. One of the two old genuine Wigan crests would be more appropriate.

  Comments I expected Wigan to be a grotty northern mining town full of Dickens "dark, stanic mills", smoky and nothing but a big slum. Whoa, am I surprised. I had no idea it would be so historic and so beautifull, judging by this site. Even the famous "pier" has been restored. Based on this site, next time I'm in England I will definately stop off at Wigan for a few days. This site is excellent, especially enjoyabel are the pictures and teh dictionary of "Wigonian". Cheers.
