Damn shame


Comment by Mick on 15th May 2009 at 05:58
I never knew that.


Comment by Henry7 on 15th May 2009 at 08:35
Very sad, again, the changing face of Wigan. I wonder if today's buildings will be standing in 100 years?


Comment by Ron D on 15th May 2009 at 08:49
They did have a good time last night. Ive heard of raising the roof ?. Still there is a Seven Stars at Standish, lets all go there.

Comment by zoe on 15th May 2009 at 11:36
why do they let it get so bad? surely they could of kept the maintinance up on it, few years time there wil be no original features in wigan, just all new build


Comment by ourmaude on 16th May 2009 at 08:37
It's not about maintenance the place was set alight and badly damaged.


Comment by Alan on 16th May 2009 at 15:34
Use to drink in there on my work break in the early 80's from bake house on Pottery Road, another great building soon be gone.


Comment by Sparky2009 on 23rd May 2009 at 01:49
Another traditional pub bites the dust, the thing that I find mystifying is every week the building seems to diminish more & more.


Comment by jean mills from portugal /bryn on 7th July 2009 at 22:55
omg there's gonna be nowt left of wigan in a bit such a lovely pub and building wot on earth is goin on at all!!!! no casino either


Comment by Roy on 9th November 2009 at 15:15
Sorry Ron D,there isn't a Seven Stars in Standish anymore!


Comment by Chris Ackland (nee Hunter) on 17th December 2012 at 16:03
I agree with Zoe...all these beautiful architectural buildings being pulled down is such a shame. I've been looking through the pics of the Wigan library and the Town Hall, even the pubs were lovely to look at and what character these buildings have...so ornate...this type of architecture is irreplaceable and should be preserved at all cost.
