My grandmother, the former Daisy Wood was born here at the old Wigan Girls High School in 1883.

These photos of the day are getting more interesting and show places you dont normally see.

I have to agree with you Dave. Very unusual.

it sewer is a good pic

That is different.
For a underground tunnel or sewer pipe, it looks very clean..

I'll echo the earlier comments, Stewart.
Thank you for that great photograph :o)

That is a great photo,very errie and claustrophobic i expect, lets not forget the men who built these tunnels and sewers many years ago there workmanship as really stood the test of time.

Great picture! I've heard that Wigan has a lot of tunnels underground that are not just for sewerage and that some lead to Haigh Hall???

I used to go through this tunnel as a young lad, it goes under the railway line at Whitley crossing.
