It will be nice to see it completed and tidied up. Wonder what it will be used for?


Comment by Den s on 2nd June 2013 at 00:30
It does my old heart good to see that at least one fine building in Wigan as been saved.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 2nd June 2013 at 05:24
Looks lovely.....Brian....should be great when it is finished....love the Tudor look....very clean lines.....cheers!!


Comment by Mick on 2nd June 2013 at 07:30
I think it says its going to be a information centre and Hygiene suites


Comment by Maggie K on 2nd June 2013 at 09:16
Brilliant - hope it is looked after. What is a hygiene suite? The waterfall at the bowling green end of the duck pond is now running - I have been going to the park for 60 years and didn't even know it was supposed to be a water fall. Hopefully the paths will be done soon and that people stop playing ball games etc. on the grassed areas where the flower beds are.

this lodge had been unused for many a year. Glad to see it put back to its former self externally.

Would have been perfect as the registry office.


Comment by Tommy Two Stroke on 2nd June 2013 at 18:09
I was told by an old lady, that at one time, the Mesnes Park Lodge was used by the head of the parks department at Wigan Council as a sort of official residence and he actually lived there, I think she meant in the days before Wigan Metro was formed, when it was Wigan Borough.


Comment by Bob on 2nd June 2013 at 20:07
Mick I have looked at your videos. The Boer memorial looks quite steady as you walk around. What camera did you use? Did you use a cam steady?


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 2nd June 2013 at 21:28
Tommy two stroke......I lived in Wigan until 1953 and i always understood it to be the residence of the park superintendent as well.


Comment by Mick on 2nd June 2013 at 23:04
Bob its a Sony and its got steady cam on it and I usually just lean on my handle bars when videoing.


Comment by A.W. on 3rd June 2013 at 10:03
I'm just surprised they didn't demolish it and build apartments on the site, it's what usually happens to any half decent looking old building nowadays.
