Nostalgic photo Mick, lets the memories and imagination run riot.


Comment by alan on 20th February 2015 at 00:40
The worst Wigan view I have ever seen.


Comment by David Fairclough on 20th February 2015 at 04:01
Is that the lane that went to the rear of what use to be the UCP


Comment by peterp on 20th February 2015 at 07:24
Did the flagger sample the ale before laying the pavement, where's H&Safety?


Comment by spenian on 20th February 2015 at 08:24
Allgates brewery, good night in there.


Comment by Helen on 20th February 2015 at 08:28
I've seen alleys like is in other towns...they look a lot better.


Comment by Aubrey on 20th February 2015 at 08:46
General Post Office on the left, Last Orders pub on the right. You have caught a part of Wigan that is not the most picturesque Mick.


Comment by A.W. on 20th February 2015 at 09:06
Alan, it's an excellent historic view and they don't have to be beautiful though I like it myself.


Comment by irene roberts on 20th February 2015 at 09:23
I like it. If the modern things,(beer containers etc.) were removed, it would look Victorian, or even Dickensian.


Comment by Fred Mason on 20th February 2015 at 09:45
It looks really shabby, but this is the real Wigan. The old Wigan. The Wigan full of character rather than the new steel and glass buildings without any character at all and will never gain any character.

Great photo, Mick.


Comment by Giovanni on 20th February 2015 at 11:47
If a paving stone protrudes 20mm or more it is classed as a trip hazard and compensation can be pursued!!
Off you go you lot with your cameras and bandages!


Comment by RON HUNT on 20th February 2015 at 11:56
Those flags must be some of the oldest in Wigan.


Comment by jj on 20th February 2015 at 11:59
What an interesting shot! Couldn't agree more with Fred Mason.


Comment by Neil Cain on 20th February 2015 at 13:25
If only bricks and flags could talk! I'm with Fred and jj


Comment by britboy on 20th February 2015 at 16:06
Looking at the flagging, I'd say it was correctly laid, slanted sides with a straight run off centre for rain water drainage.
Over many years it has suffered a bit but IMO laid to drain.
BTW...great photo of a little bit of original Wigan.


Comment by Julie on 20th February 2015 at 16:15
Well chosen Mick.


Comment by RON HUNT on 20th February 2015 at 16:24
A couple of years ago I spent a day at the Brewery, very interesting, but it was a 5.00 a.m. start...


Comment by Julie on 20th February 2015 at 19:12
Well chosen Mick.


Comment by Neil Rigby on 20th February 2015 at 19:36
Really good picture, showing how it used to be in many places.


Comment by irene roberts on 20th February 2015 at 20:41
Were you singing "Nellie Dean" by 10.30.pm, Ron?! I would have been!


Comment by Mark conroy on 20th February 2015 at 22:14
I had to reverse a Post Office van down this entry to load it with cash and such from the door seen on the left
for delivery to Post Offices.The entry offered perfect security as there was only a couple of inches either side free when the van was parked.


Comment by JeSuisCharlieWatson on 21st February 2015 at 12:45
I wish I knew this jigger existed in my youth. Ideal for undisturbed cuddling! lol


Comment by Giovanni on 21st February 2015 at 18:10
More like 10:30AM Irene!
I know your track record in the wine lodge!! lol


Comment by irene roberts on 21st February 2015 at 20:23
A Barley Wine in hand as we speak, Giovanni. Cheers!


Comment by Giovanni on 22nd February 2015 at 10:54
Salute e chin-chin, Irene!! lol


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 22nd February 2015 at 13:36
See photo #19384 in Album, Places, Wallgate, 2nd on 4th row on page 4 for a view of this alley taken in 1988.


Comment by A BOLTON on 22nd February 2015 at 23:21
What a brilliant reminder of old Wigan Mick...I love it...You have a knack of taking such good pictures of the unusual!


Comment by Dougie's Mate on 5th March 2015 at 13:24
Irene Roberts - Dickensian IS Victorian! Get to know!


Comment by Giovanni on 6th March 2015 at 10:43
Thats told you Irene!
I pity Dougie with a mate like that. LOL


Comment by Dougie's Mate on 6th March 2015 at 19:49
Hello Giovanni. I'll have a ninety-nine, please. With loads of Raspberry!
