Scot Lane, Aspull. Across from Moorgate pub.

Comment by Ken R on 3rd November 2014 at 00:17
Thanks Ron. What could be better than having a couple of pints in the Moorgate then across the road to the chippie ( Happy Valley ) for fish and chips then walking to my sister-in-laws on Scot Lane. And so to bed. Its been a while since I did that.


Comment by Den s on 3rd November 2014 at 00:30
Just a little further up the hill from the Moorgate Arthur Winrow used to have a shop where he made the best meat and potato pies in Lancashire bar none. I can see him now in the back room wearing his white Pinny and always a cigarette dangling from his mouth, making those pies by hand. Maybe it was the cigarette ash that made the difference but I have never found any other shop that could match Arthur's pies.

I used to live in stanmoor drive ,Happy Valley was a well frequented takeaway great memories.


Comment by Mick on 3rd November 2014 at 08:07
Ken R I would give the Happy Valley a miss and walk up to Ratcliffe road chippie


Comment by joe graney on 3rd November 2014 at 08:43
Mick your right one of the owners was named Joe some locals nicknamed him slow joes,good chippy though.


Comment by Giovanni on 3rd November 2014 at 08:46
Never knew anyone from Aspull so never went. It seems I wasn't missing much!


Comment by Giovanni on 3rd November 2014 at 08:51
Were you sleeping with your sister-in -law KenR? You must have had a falling out if its long since you done that!


Comment by Den s on 3rd November 2014 at 10:20
Giovanni, I imagine Aspull didn't miss you very much either.


Comment by joe graney on 3rd November 2014 at 10:25
giovanni with respect the people from aspull are the lucky ones not to have met you.the KenR comment was uncalled for.


Comment by Colin Harlow on 3rd November 2014 at 11:16
Aspull is one of the nicest places in Wigan, with some lovely people.


Comment by Giovanni on 3rd November 2014 at 11:22
Scusi, loro sfortuna

I would welcome a conducted tour!


Comment by Garry on 3rd November 2014 at 13:28
Giovanni is a right idiot. How can you
judge a place you've never even seen before.


Comment by Garry on 3rd November 2014 at 13:34
Den S I agree but the best pies in Wigan or the whole of Lancashire was Ashurst's pies that used to be in Belle Green Lane, in Hr Ince. They were the best.


Comment by dirty harry on 3rd November 2014 at 16:41
GIOVANNI you speak with fork tongue and not a fork from the chippy .i can be ignorant but you take the mick.


Comment by Giovanni on 3rd November 2014 at 16:46
I was brought up on pasta and spaghetti but those potato and meat pies were bellissimo!
Sorry for the earlier misunderstanding. The people in Aspull are probably ace but its the buildings that look tatty!


Comment by Derek Platt on 3rd November 2014 at 16:57
Everyone who praises the lovely people of Aspull are dead on. I always stay with lovely people when I visit Wigan. Mind you they are family and they are much like myself. By the way love the photo.


Comment by Shaun on 3rd November 2014 at 17:38
If this is modern Britain , bring back the old days please!!


Comment by Karen on 3rd November 2014 at 17:48
Giovanni, don,t know about your pasta and spaghetti but I nearly choked on my sugar puffs when I read your comment this morning.


Comment by Giovanni on 3rd November 2014 at 21:11
Karen - You should be having museli for brekkie!

Sugar puffs on the lips
Puts pounds on the hips ;-)


Comment by Giovanni on 4th November 2014 at 11:10
Karen - an alternative brekkie is Quaker Oats drizzled with Manuka honey...perfecto!


Comment by Karen on 4th November 2014 at 17:09
Giovanni, Manuka is expensive, so no rubbish for you then. Must admit never tried that but this is PAD not recipe of the day.


Comment by Giovanni on 4th November 2014 at 19:04
Karen - What if I take a photo of a bowl of cereals then with Gales honey? Tastes just as well but health benefits of Manuka are superb!


Comment by Karen on 21st November 2014 at 17:29
Nice one Gio


Comment by Giovanni on 26th November 2014 at 11:39
