Comment by Ken R on 3rd October 2014 at 00:48
Do they hope to attract customers with an Ape at the front?


Comment by Alan (on Vancouver Island) on 3rd October 2014 at 01:05
OMG ! the Fox was my local in the 1960's and early '70's. What on earth is that doing there ?


Comment by Garry on 3rd October 2014 at 08:49
The Fox has always been at Roby Mill, Alan.


Comment by kath on 3rd October 2014 at 08:51
Love it! up the road from me someone has a lifesize boxing Gorilla on their wall.
I bet many people sit on this one's hand and have their photo taken


Comment by Fred Mason on 3rd October 2014 at 09:41
Alan, Isn't that the landlord from the early 70's?

Another interesting pic, Mick.


Comment by Chris roberts on 3rd October 2014 at 10:11
By the look on his face King Kong not very happy about his meal ,and how much it cost him .(LOL)


Comment by Dave b on 3rd October 2014 at 10:48
He looks in a bad mood,good one Mick ,pity it wasn't a (misty )day get it?


Comment by Ron D on 3rd October 2014 at 11:20
He is the bouncer.


Comment by Garry on 3rd October 2014 at 11:33
It look like two photos in one, Mick. Is it superimposed?


Comment by Chris Roberts on 3rd October 2014 at 13:18
Mick I had the same thought as Garry but could not resist putting the comment on.


Comment by Jod on 3rd October 2014 at 14:15
If you sit on his hand to have your photo taken, you can then go in the pub and make a donation to Wigan and Leigh Hospice for the privilege!
No Garry, the outside wall has been deliberately decorated like that!!
BTW, the pub is really nice inside, quite 'quirky', like the other Fifteens pubs!


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 4th October 2014 at 15:17
like the photo ...but not the ape!
Like Dens comment but coildnt decipher the last word.....its 61 years since I left Wigan !


Comment by Carol on 7th October 2014 at 15:25
There is one of these gorillas for sale at Barton Grange garden centre. I'd really like one for my garden. They are expensive!


Comment by Garry on 7th October 2014 at 21:10
Why Carol, they'll scare all the birds.


Comment by Dave on 14th November 2014 at 13:48
I believe someone named it Malcolm D'Gorilla after someone in the village !
