What a beautiful building, so typical of the area. is it in any danger? I mean of being demolished?

Comment by Grumpy Dave on 31st January 2014 at 11:54
No Maggie, it won't be demolished, just left to rot and be vandalised, because all our tax goes to Big Wiggin.

It's already had a visit from the lead thieves
Won't be long before they are inside helping themselves
And it's will go the same way as old town hall

Hindley Library has a sign up for rent.Don't know if anyone is renting yet but I heard workmen in the basement on Monday this week when I was passing. (At least I hope it was workmen!!!!!)


Comment by wiganer on 31st January 2014 at 16:26
I went past here today and their is a notice on, To Let why close it in the first place perhaps Lord Smith could explain why

Excellent photo Brian.Brings back good memories of this magnificent building,during my early years in Hindley.The ground floor was the public library,the upper floor was the reference library ,having both Chambers and Britannia encyclopaedias,plus a Tibetan Monastery bell!I am so sad (and mad)that the people of Hindley are now denied this.

Nice shot Brian, so nice to see old buildings [built by great British builders]. Though I do wonder will this end up as flats. Such a shame to think our soldiers died to preserve our heritage & yet every day our heritage crumbles bit by bit. If it was not serious it would be funny. Thanks Brian for bringing this to the publics attention
