Garry, you've obviously never been to Central Park?


Comment by Garry on 13th March 2014 at 21:42

Comment by Ernest Pyke on 13th March 2014 at 22:56

An old photo of a bowls trip in a charabanc in front of the Royal Oak is in Album, Assorted, Outings, 1st on 2nd row.

Comment by Garry on 17th March 2014 at 10:05

Comment by Art on 18th March 2014 at 01:18
Why say Wigan Lane when it's Standishgate


Comment by David on 18th March 2014 at 16:15
Wasn't Fred Grimes on the opposite side at one time?


Comment by Garry on 19th March 2014 at 11:01
Wigan Lane it is. Fred Grimes was on Wigan Lane, thanks David.


Comment by Garry on 19th March 2014 at 13:50

Royal Oak Wigan
Contact Information

111-113 Standishgate Wigan, Lancashire WN1 1XL‎

Pub · Today 4:00 pm 12:00 am

A traditional pub, close to Wigan town centre. Noted for real ales, real music and real people. Mayflower Brewery is located at The Royal Oak


Comment by Art on 19th March 2014 at 15:27
I think if you go for a pint at 106 Wigan Lane, you'll find yourself in the Bowling Green Hotel in Swinley

Garry...Always wrong ;o)


Comment by Garry on 19th March 2014 at 21:02
My slight mistake, it should read WN6 8LJ Royal Oak Wigan Lane.
WN1 1XL is Worsley Terrace. Wrong again, Art. Once again I'm right.


Comment by Art on 20th March 2014 at 01:04

Royal Oak,
Wigan Lower Road
Standish Lower Ground

Memo: When in a hole, stop diggin'

Comment by Garry on 21st March 2014 at 19:26
WN6 8LJ...WIGAN LANE!


Comment by Art on 22nd March 2014 at 00:54
Wanna bet? WN6 8LJ is 300 yards from my front door.
WN1 1XL is Standishgate


Comment by Garry on 22nd March 2014 at 18:36
WN1 1XL MIGHT BE STANDISHGATE, but WN6 8LJ is WIGAN LANE. Stop being such an old fool. Final answer.


Comment by Fred Aussi on 23rd March 2014 at 12:34
