I'm glad to see that there is at least one pub that has not closed !


Comment by Rob on 18th January 2012 at 09:39
Not my favourite pub but that is a great photo :-)


Comment by Dave Marsh on 18th January 2012 at 09:50
Probably Wigans best known view well captured,Andrew.


Comment by aitch on 18th January 2012 at 09:52
Maybe not closed, but the names a bit ominous, one pub in Wigan I have never been in, nice to see a clean area of Wigan though


Comment by Scholes Malc on 18th January 2012 at 10:20
should be re-named 'The Last Rights' cos everyone who goes in there looks on their last legs!


Comment by irene roberts on 18th January 2012 at 11:35
Very atmospheric.


Comment by MC on 18th January 2012 at 12:09
It's a nice photo but a pity the Parish Church is behind all those buildings.


Comment by Syd on 18th January 2012 at 12:57
Now THAT is Wigan! Photos like this are what Wiganworld is all about. Great shot Andrew, Brilliant!


Comment by dc on 18th January 2012 at 13:32
Just what I like to see smokers congregating round the front door of a pub,how do you get in and out without suffering the effects of passive smoking,when it rains they probable stand in the door way.none smoking pubs dont think so!


Comment by David on 18th January 2012 at 16:12
Trying to think what it was called in the 1960s.


Comment by HENRY7 on 18th January 2012 at 16:27
Great photo Andrew. Wigan at it's best.


Comment by dirty harry on 18th January 2012 at 16:41
come out of there with a clogg and a pump on many a time. as for the smokers outside WHAT DO YOU WANT THEM TO DO STAND IN YOUR FRONT ROOM?HMMMM PASSIVE SMOKING maybe lots of pubs n clubs would still be open if they had'nt banned it.


Comment by ted on 18th January 2012 at 17:16
david, i think it was the dog and partrige,but my memory is not what it was!!!!


Comment by red stripe on 18th January 2012 at 18:18
I remember it as The Bees Knees


Comment by cullie on 18th January 2012 at 18:27
BEES KNEES


Comment by Anne on 18th January 2012 at 18:36
Use to go here in the 70s when it was The Bees Knees...cherry winw in the wine bar..


Comment by wcml on 18th January 2012 at 19:39
brilliant shot andrew,dirty harrys comment about smoking in pubs is spot on.


Comment by H on 18th January 2012 at 20:44
Maybe pubs closing may be to do with supermarkets selling ale at such low prices, they almost give it away. It is a nightmare fighting your way through the smoke and smell trying to get in or out of pubs without wearing breathing apparatus, why bother?


Comment by Neil A on 18th January 2012 at 22:08
An advantage of smokers in the doorway is that you get to see a sample of the pub's clientele without entering.


Comment by Art on 19th January 2012 at 00:37
In the 60's it was the Dog & Partridge..Nobby Clarke was the landlord


Comment by dc on 19th January 2012 at 07:00
dirty harry & Neil A, Clearly selfish, who havent a thought for the thousands of people with health problems associated with the effects of passive smoking.


Comment by Helen on 19th January 2012 at 08:55
Great shot of the church.....What gets me about smokers is their fag ends....they drop them everywhere & don't consider them litter !


Comment by David on 19th January 2012 at 11:41
Thanks Art. I remember Nobby, he liked the horses, as I do. Didn't he take a pub in Standish?


Comment by Neil A on 19th January 2012 at 15:11
dc, my comment was tongue in cheek. And by the way, I'm not a smoker and never have been.


Comment by dc on 19th January 2012 at 19:43
Sorry Neil, I know what you mean


Comment by josie on 19th January 2012 at 20:37
lovely pic,but was this am or pm coz this pub and harrys bar is always packed with men and women most of them stood outside ,at 10 am 11am ,how can anyone want to be in the pub at tat time and how do they afford it!!!!!


Comment by Bill Eatock on 19th January 2012 at 22:08
Great photo. Reminds me of the time me and a mate got sozzled in the then Bee's Knees.
We decided to walk it home to Hindley. Managed to get to Ince Bar and fell asleep near to Robinson's antiques. It was 7 o'clock in the morning before we woke up!
An hangover of epic proportions soon followed...


Comment by dave williams on 20th January 2012 at 22:30
it was always called the dog and partridge(the bees knees of wigan)but the words bees knees were much bigger


Comment by Roy on 12th February 2012 at 17:30
Yes David he had The Horseshoe, ironically enough if you say he liked a bet.
