What was the sreet nane that it was on, close to seven stars bridge, its been a long time, i think at one time the fleet was well over 100 in the 70s


Comment by Mog on 6th August 2011 at 09:11
Gerald, the street is/was Melverley Street.


Comment by Jon on 6th August 2011 at 09:29
This is to make room for the new road i think i heard


Comment by aitch on 6th August 2011 at 09:49
Melverley Street !, I spent many hours going through those doors, also the small building out of picture in the extreme left, known as the transport club


Comment by Dave Johnson on 6th August 2011 at 10:15
Remember the Bowling Green at the back of the Transport Club, not a lot of people realised it was there?


Comment by nephro on 6th August 2011 at 17:38
Every time it rained hard that place used to flood to a great depth.


Comment by Margaret on 6th August 2011 at 19:29
I remember the bowling green. I worked at Vulcanite and we were sometimes allowed to play on it in our lunch hour


Comment by Rev David Long on 6th August 2011 at 21:18
I suppose Wigan Metro has had to buy the building off First to be able to carry out their road project.
Did they receive any payment for it when their transport undertaking, for which the garage was built originally, was absorbed into Greater Manchester?
The Government is compelling Councils to declare what assets they own. It would be interesting to know the value today of assets they once owned (water, electricity, gas, transport etc.), which private companies are now profiting from....

Fell asleep many a time and ended up here in the dead of night. Had to walk the rest of way to Pemberton, sure did sober one up before facing mum. Happy days.


Comment by Bri on 11th August 2011 at 18:12
Right under my nose and didn't even know they had moved!! Thought it looked a bit quiet when i was passing the other day!

Took a few pics of the former Wigan Corpy bus depot last week, which is now being demolished.
Get your pics while you still can!
