Now there's a relief from the concrete monstrosities we've been seeing for a while! Thanks for this Danny.


Comment by kath on 9th January 2016 at 08:54
a handsome building and so rarely looked at properly


Comment by A.W. on 9th January 2016 at 10:13
it does have a pleasantly quaint look about it.


Comment by Maureen on 9th January 2016 at 10:38
Now isn't that just a beautiful building..I wish all buildings in Wigan were as classy as that..thanks Danny.


Comment by Veronica on 9th January 2016 at 13:40
Wigan has a mix of the great and grotesque and this is one of the greats almost 'fairytale' in its construction.


Comment by Linda massa on 9th January 2016 at 13:45
The old County police station, worked there in the 60's.


Comment by DerekB on 9th January 2016 at 14:01
Sorry folks, don't share your sentiments. I think it is a hideous building along with the Town Hall in Library St and most Victorian/Edwardian architecture. I worked inside this building for some years and found it the most depressing place I have ever worked in.


Comment by Maureen on 9th January 2016 at 14:10
Linda..one of our neighbours used to clean there,Mrs Lynch.


Comment by Kas on 9th January 2016 at 14:58
I,m totally opposite to you Derek, I love Victorian architecture. In those days they seemed to take more pride in what was built.
Look at the box next door above. Saying that each their own. Thanks for the picture Danny.


Comment by DerekB on 9th January 2016 at 18:27
I totally respect your and other peoples preferences Kas. As you rightly say, to each their own. There are also some hideous buildings in Wigan which are relatively new = the most notorious example being Brocol House in King St.


Comment by Ellen on 9th January 2016 at 19:03
Veronica, as to your 'fairytale' comments,one of my thoughts was of Mad King Ludvig and his extravagant castles!


Comment by Vb on 9th January 2016 at 22:15
Think that's why Victoria and Albert were so passionate about Balmoral Ellen- it reminded them of Germany.


Comment by Broady on 10th January 2016 at 01:44
Spot on Derek B. Every time I drive past there I think the Architect and planners who allowed it should be sent into exile. It is hideous.


Comment by Ellen on 10th January 2016 at 02:14
Vb, how interesting,I never thought of it that way before!


Comment by alan on 10th January 2016 at 03:32
DereckB....some people have no heart.
