If you have a chance, walk under the bridge and look at the underside of the arch. The bridge is sharply skewed and the masonry has to make a matching twist. Does anyone still know how to do this?

This is one of the few areas where I feel I am in the 'old Wigan'.

Robin, the best example of skewed brickwork I know, is the bridge at the end of Danes Avenue Hindley going into Borsdane wood, that is a belter.


Comment by Albert parr on 8th February 2009 at 11:36
Its only skewed; when youv had a few pints and your skewed...

I used to walk down this road from Wigan college in the late 1980's. There was a shop further down the road (going away from the town centre) called Wigan Bankrupt Stock where I bought my first electric guitar. I live in Worcestershire now so I've no idea if the shop has gone. Anyone know?
