Ince Walk
 Ince Walk   by Roger Whistlecroft  (Samsung Galaxy S4)
Ince Walk, Wigan - the coldest and draughtiest alley in town.

Comment by Lizzie down under on 13th November 2013 at 00:36
It looks cold and draughty....another update for my memory bank.....thank you Roger.........cheers!!!


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 13th November 2013 at 04:15
Roger; I disagree - the Wiend is higher and narrower.
Morrisons keep hiking up their prices as are all the supermarkets.


Comment by Mick on 13th November 2013 at 06:24
Nice to see the market before it gets developed into something more modern,


Comment by kath on 13th November 2013 at 08:54
Well, I never knew that was called Ince walk. it's a great shot, but where was it taken from?


Comment by tricia on 13th November 2013 at 09:00
??? .... and these buildings are not modern???Please explain Mick.
The incompetents that form Wigan Metro would do better to provide decent carparks. We only found one able to accommodate us and that was the one at the bottom of King Street where they have pulled down yet another old building.


Comment by Mick on 13th November 2013 at 09:31
Tricia, a more modern place that will get more use and will give the teenagers of Wigan something to do and enjoy.

These old style of markets have been deserted by the older generation of Wiganers because they prefer to shop in the modern supermarkets


Comment by Fred O on 13th November 2013 at 10:07
Mick I think you need to pay a visit to Bolton or Bury markets to see how many people shop there(also a lot cheaper than Wigan)


Comment by Alan H on 13th November 2013 at 10:28
I saw the artists impression of the proposed new developments in the Wigan Observer last week. We surely do mot want anything like that anywhere near the town centre. It will be totally out of place. Let us hope that we can persuade the Council to throw out the proposals.


Comment by Mick on 13th November 2013 at 12:10
Fred O, Im a regular visitor to Bolton market and I will agree with you that there market is thriving but thats down the them selling a lot of Asian veg and fruit to there mostly Asian customers.

Wigan markets as gone down hill because Wiganers stopped shopping there.


Comment by Cyril on 13th November 2013 at 16:35
Maybe the administration of Bolton and Bury should administer Wigan too, they seem to know what their residents want and need, and they also seem to have a sense of purpose to do what they were elected to do.


Comment by Rocky on 13th November 2013 at 17:23
Mick you are always banging the drum about the youth zone,how many more ugly boxes do you want for the poor bored teenagers?


Comment by jp on 13th November 2013 at 18:30
The older generation travel to Bolton and Bury because the markets there outdo Wigan in everything.Also it cost nothing on the bus, train, or the Metro to get there.


Comment by jeff on 13th November 2013 at 20:14
it just goes to show how wrong they got it. coz it's not been there 10 min's and there gonna knock it down and start again. typical !


Comment by Phil Whitehead on 13th November 2013 at 23:31
Is that Scholes Flats just visible over the roofline to the left of the photo?


Comment by tricia on 14th November 2013 at 09:07
Spot on jp....I spent a fortune this trip in other towns as I could not park anywhere in Wigan! Found the place at the bottom of King Street on one of our last days there.
