Nice view of the Hall, but is the conversion to a hotel really on the books. What are the local opinions ?

This is a great picture of an iconic Wigan landmark.Glad to see it's being restored and not razed to the ground.

A lot of Wianers thought this luxury hotel Project would never get off the ground, but from the look of that cherry picker it has.

As far as I am aware the hall has not been signed over to Contessa Hotels yet. This looks like a bit of routine maintenance to me.

If John is correct, hello John, then all the lurries rumbling down Copperas Lane and up School Lane are taking a bit of a flyer. Many a slip?

Hi Neil, the lorries you refer to may be involved in the car park refurbishment. I was at a meeting at the hall on Tuesday and they said they were hoping to get the hall transferred to Contessa Hotels in January.
