P.O., Pub, Church
 P.O., Pub, Church   by Rachel Shallcross  (Nikon D3300)
I believe this is the most photographed place in Wigan town centre.

Thanks Rachel-I always enjoy pics like this.(the wet ground reminds me of one of the reasons I'm glad I live in Ontario! LOL)


Comment by Mick on 8th December 2015 at 04:11
Theres plenty of satellites dishes on the pub.


Comment by Alan on 8th December 2015 at 08:34
Ellen dont matter where you live, nothing beats good old Wigan in the UK. Very good shot Rachel.


Comment by jackie scholes on 8th December 2015 at 08:59
This photo, and all the photos, have brought family history alive for me.
Grandma moved from Scholes to Oldham ... and married a man called Scholes. Wigan was unknown to me until just recently and your photos and banter on this site have just brought it alive for me.
Keep it up. Grateful thanks

The rainy weather makes this much better, Rachel. I prefer it mild and damp at this time of year - it`s easier on my electric bill!
Wonder how near the church clock is to 13:20.
I went in the GPO yesterday morning but came straight out as the queue was up to the door!
Before we had the one queue, I was always in the wrong one!

This view has changed so little over the years.


Comment by Cyril on 8th December 2015 at 11:58
aye, and there's plenty of bikes outside the bookies too Mick, all the buildings in the photo are very happy in relieving folks of their money.

The Last Orders pub has now gone back to its original name The Dog & Partridge.In between names it was called The Bees Knees, The famous Merrydown cider bar was at the top end of the pub .Good atmosphere round Wigan late 70s early 80s .

My first job when I came to live in Wigan as a newly-wed in 1969 was at Ackerley Heaton and Pigot, Solicitors. This little corner of Wigan still holds its charm, much of it due to the beautiful Parish Church in the background.

The Dog and Partridge - landlord Nobby Clarke.


Comment by Robin Leigh on 10th December 2015 at 03:14
I'm glad to see the GPO is still there with the big oval post box in front.


Comment by Derek Callaghan on 10th December 2015 at 17:17
Lovely to see two original telephone boxes together. Wonder if they still press button A and B ha ha. Remember the old Dog and Partridge in the sixties as well.


Comment by Caroline Waterhouse ne Jowitt on 17th December 2015 at 16:37
My Grandma Jowitt was the landlady st the Dog and Partridge many years ago
