This will always be home, no matter where you live or where you have travelled. Join the 'Save Wigan' campaign. You are wanted.!!

You're right there Fred. It's been 35 years since I last lived in Wigan and my parents aren't alive any more so the "pull" is less, nevertheless Wigan will always be "home". Lots of happy memories!

If I wanted to be reminded of Wigan when Im along way from home I would pick a better view that that to do it.

I remember many years ago when talking about a holiday we'd had abroad and how beautiful it was there, my dad saying "even Wallgate is lovely when the sun's shining".

Yes i have to agree with Mick, theres much better images of Wigan than Wallgate.

Be it ever so humble, Mick, there's no place like home

There's a older photo almost identical to that shot in Wigan World Album. Goes to show how little some parts of Wigan have changed.
