I like the look of those, a lot nicer than brick and concrete

Tom, I`ve been on Google and this would appear to be Bramley Court?
There`s a two bedroom flat for sale at £112,500 refer :-

The boundary wall certainly `matches` this property.

I think they blend in really nicely with the area but I once heard one woman saying they looked like a prison to her.


Comment by linda on 21st May 2012 at 15:11
I went to St Wilfrid's junior school there in the early 1950's.

I love these Apartments! Would love to live in one of those. What a beautiful blue sky. I miss Wigan!!! <3 If only flights were cheaper ...

Yes i went there in 1945, the old school has been demolished apart from the section you can see on the extreme right of the photo. It is Bramley Court Ernest named after Rector Bramley of St Wilfrids in the 50s and 60s. Yes i know Marjorie, i see her almost every day, surname Langton now.


Comment by Roy on 28th May 2012 at 18:12
The part of the old school that was St Wilfrids club doesn,t exist any more Thomas,the apartments are a new build, the club was at the rear of the old part that is still standing on the extreme right of your photo.
