Not quite. Parish Church Garden, Crawford St & old County Court Buildings ;o)


Comment by Alan, Vancouver Island on 12th October 2013 at 03:30
That's the Parish Church ???
I thought the Wigan Parish Church was just behind the town centre, and was constructed of grey stone. (I don't remember the street address).This looks more like a school, built of red brick

. Where is it located ?

Maybe I have been away from Wigan for too long . Being on an island surrounded by the glistening waters of the Pacific Ocean is a little hypnotising.

Best regards to all who contribute to Wigan World.

its not all concrete out there


Comment by kath on 12th October 2013 at 06:53
that's a great shot of an often overlooked little spot of greenery in the town centre.


Comment by Mick on 12th October 2013 at 10:20
The building looks great from the outside but its run down inside.

The garden is usually a hang out for Wigans down and out winos.


Comment by Roy on 12th October 2013 at 10:44
Alan, Ron is stood in the 'churchyard' taking this pic, the church is directly behind him. A great building, totally redundant at the moment. My son met his wife to be when they worked in the County Courts.PS Where is the Citizens Advice Bureau these days which used to be in this building?

Comment by Photo of the Day viewer on 12th October 2013 at 14:24
The Citizens Advice Bureau is now in the same building as the main library at the top of The Wiend.


Comment by linma on 12th October 2013 at 16:56

Comment by peterp on 12th October 2013 at 17:56
Alan I put the wrong date should have been the 20th 2012 but by chance my 1st date was where the CAB is now


Comment by peterammy on 12th October 2013 at 19:17

Comment by John H on 13th October 2013 at 18:14
