The Famous Pagefield
 The Famous Pagefield   by Brian  (Fuji Finepix S7000)
Pub on Park Road, Wigan. Does anyone know why it is famous? I don't.

Anyone know why the plot of land in Gidlow Lane, next to it, has never been built on?


Comment by Helen on 14th October 2009 at 08:46
Nice looking building, the sort that always reminds me of the North.


Comment by mags on 14th October 2009 at 10:22
two pubs I remember fromgrowing up and visiting grandparents in Rylands Street (Off Gidlow Lane) are the Pagefield and the Springfield.


Comment by rebian on 14th October 2009 at 18:57
I do remember something on that spare land about 20 years ago not sure wether shops or houses


Comment by antony whittaker on 14th October 2009 at 21:11
It was a row of shops the last one in the row was a antique shop


Comment by dot on 14th October 2009 at 22:50
there was a post office in the row of shops and I think a butchers shop at the end nearest to the Pagefield. The buildings were quite old.
I can remember when there no traffic lights.


Comment by Keith Guest on 15th October 2009 at 15:28
I worked in that butchers shop 1961/63 next door was a news agents then the post office then a cloggers last shop was a dog grooming parlour.

A very late comment but I was just browsing and read the comments.What a great looking building the pagefield pub was..Going back to the late 40`s and early 50`s,my best friend at scool was brenda Calland. Her father Horace calland had the newsagents round the corner on gidlow lane..sadly brenda died suddenly one mothers day She was only 15.good memories/

Further to my comment at 07:24, the land I mentioned is now being built on and was started a few weeks back.
