Welcome
 Welcome   by Thomas Walsh  (Canon PowerShot A1200)
Welcome to Wigan sign at Sovereign Works, Lower Ince.

-and a very attractive welcome it is!


Comment by Mick on 4th October 2014 at 07:47
I think those welcome picture sign where a very good idea.

They show a bit of the industry that the area was know for.


Comment by Helen on 4th October 2014 at 07:52
Mmmmmmh......


Comment by Garry on 4th October 2014 at 07:56
Have you seen how scruffy it is round there. The start of Orrell St, up to the derelict Shepards Arms pub. I walk round there with my dog, its really bad. People do fly tipping aswell.


Comment by Alan on 4th October 2014 at 08:56
I think you'll find this area is called Britannia Bridge. Lower Ince, starts after the school.

Good car wash good clear picture. Nice one Tom The Sovereign rd works is now to be industrial units and storage.


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 4th October 2014 at 15:02
I agree with Helen....but there are a lot better welcome signs with surroundings to attract,Sign itself is very nice but doesn`t look right just there.


Comment by irene roberts on 4th October 2014 at 18:13
Right place or not, I love those signs.....a lot of talent there, and they cheer you up as well.


Comment by Ellen on 4th October 2014 at 18:42
But then,the sign is placed (of course) at an entrance to the town used by all types of traffic. Wherever I've traveled by train over many years, I've noticed that the arrival in an urban area is always less than pleasant! maybe this area is less than beautiful; all the more reason to have an attractive sign which is representing some of some of the town's more attractive features!

Gypsy do fly tipping


Comment by Garry on 5th October 2014 at 15:34
No only GYPSYS alan! Plenty Wiganers as well...Sadly.

There used to be a little café in Sovereign Road in the mid-sixties. When I was an apprentice compositor, the journeymen at Wigan Printing Co in Chapel Lane used to make me walk all there round to it for their breakfasts. Rain or shine, they had to have their butties

Its not all that far Derick. I remember the very small printing room in chapel La.
