The closest I have seen one of these to Wigan was a flock of fourteen on the Fylde coast, several years ago.


Comment by Barbara Rigby on 12th February 2014 at 21:30

Comment by Garry on 13th February 2014 at 09:32
I agree with Dirty Harry...could be anywhere! Lets look at Wigan from the passed, things what we remember.


Comment by Wigan girl on 15th February 2014 at 08:44
To Dirty Harry & Garry stop being so narrow minded! If you'd like to see Wigan from the past then I suggest you recall the spelling and grammar lessons at school and relive those, then perhaps you may improve your written English! Clearly too uneducated to appreciate a good photo & take it at face value!


Comment by Garry on 16th February 2014 at 18:47
Wigan wench, sssshhhhh.
