Comment by Mick on 11th October 2014 at 08:34
Aspull must come second best to Shevington in Wigan to live according to its green spaces.


Comment by Garry on 11th October 2014 at 08:55
There used to be a good (English) fish and chip shop in that block years ago.


Comment by Garry on 11th October 2014 at 09:10
Mick, Ashton one of the best places to live, Aspull in good, but not good for shops-supermarkets etc etc.


Comment by maggie on 11th October 2014 at 09:56
is that the same Salters chemist who had 2 shops in Platt Bridge? I had a couple of years at school with Margaret Salter, the same family. I would love to know what happened to her.


Comment by Mick on 11th October 2014 at 11:51

If your hungry skip the video forwards to 3.00 mmmmmmm

The folks of Aspull will hopefully have far more sense and lot more pride in their village than the folks of Shevington who sold their souls to the parish council and Wigan council planners; who passed development plans and allowed the vast green belt that was once around Shevy to disappear under vast housing estates, along with the obvious traffic gridlocked roads and exhaust/noise pollution to add to the already ever present exhaust/noise pollution from the M6 motorway, Shevy is hell on earth compared to Aspull.


Comment by joe graney on 11th October 2014 at 14:40
mick where can I find this video?


Comment by derek platt on 11th October 2014 at 16:12
Good picture, got me thinking of meat and potato pies and fish and chips (across the road). I need to visit aspull again. Mind you only when I recover from the injuries received on my last visit to Wigan

Very interesting comments above. I do not know this area well, having come from Norley Hall but no one has commented on the architecture in the photo and so on, most of the comments are about pies and fish and chips...FOOD..!! None on beer and a pub so I will comment...how we love our pints in Wigan and well done to everyone who mentioned the food items. You must be true Wiganers..!!!

Also, good pic, Ron. GREAT STUFF....


Comment by Mick on 11th October 2014 at 16:54
owd marrer Shevy still has a lot of green right in the village centre and now even more now the council as bought what was the robrite fields and woods.

Joe just copy and paste this youtube link

Comment by Brenda on 11th October 2014 at 17:29
Mick, Hopefully , NOT to develop on. Fred, can you help me regarding the architecture you mention in the picture. Please forgive my ignorance.


Comment by Al on 11th October 2014 at 17:49
Shevy, Aspull, as well as Gathurst and Parbold (is that even part of Wigan?) are all nice but very few on a low wage can afford to live there anyway, which surprises me as there's more houses than ever in the area. There's good areas in these towns, and also bad areas I suppose, unless you are unlucky to live in the slums of Platt Bridge, Worsley Mesnes and other undesirable places. As for people caring for the local fields, I doubt it, nobody cares about issues like that, and the ones that do care and go about campaigning against it get stepped on, ridiculed, patronised and looked upon by others (usually the locals and councillors) as being a whinger or nutty and of the fringe crowd, much like the very brave people who had the guts to stand up to the fracking that's going on, which is certainly not for the benefit of the public/residents. The council, or rather, the government (because councils are just puppets on a string) want people into cramped, densely populated places where people can barely breath. Even school playing fields are being bought up by private developers for profit.

Comment by joe graney on 11th October 2014 at 19:12

Comment by Polly on 13th October 2014 at 17:28
