Comment by colin butcher on 15th June 2009 at 15:30
Would i be right in saying that this building is a listed building..?...if it is why should it be allowed to be defaced by ugly so called art...or whatever you call it....whoever suggested it (wigan councilers no doubt ) should be blooming SACKED...!!!!!!!!.

Wigan Borough only has one Grade I listed building. St Wilfrid's Church Standish.


Comment by BREN on 16th June 2009 at 06:39
TOTALLY RIDICULOUS TO DEFACE A BEAUTIFUL BUILDING. IT LOOKS STUPID.


Comment by Phil S on 16th June 2009 at 13:55
Colin you are so right,
Makes the town look soft, makes Wigan a laughing stock, Must have been allowed by idiotic councillors, Its about time they started earning their money, They are as bad as councillors before them who ruined the town, They just have not got a clue,

look alright in amsterdam


Comment by tricia on 29th June 2009 at 19:32
Looks like it belongs on a dockside somewhere. Please tell me it is not being built in my home town.....

As I said in another post on here, the town planners, whoever they are, (not Wiganers I dare say) should move on now whilst we still have something left.
I am on a visit to Wigan and as we walked around the Market the other day I remarked to my husband that if you were dropped, blindfolded, and put down in Wigan, you could be in any number of faceless towns...
