Are these privately owned or council owned??


Comment by Johnny on 17th March 2016 at 02:14
These are ideal for the influx of Syrian refugees expected in Wigan!


Comment by Vb on 17th March 2016 at 09:26
Pleased to see houses built rather than flats or maisonettes! (Hopefully for locals).


Comment by irene roberts on 17th March 2016 at 10:05
I like these. It is as if builders are going back to terraced housing instead of high-rise flats or semis.


Comment by Ab on 17th March 2016 at 12:50
Here we go again with the stupid comments about immigrants and refugees coming here to steal our homes and jobs, blaa, blaa. Do some research and you'll find that all the migrant crises as been deliberately engineered. Those people have been forced out because of wars, etc, but the powers that be are allowing it to escalate. They want to cause civil unrest in this country. I often wonder why alot of the fleeing refugees seem to be single men and no family groups. Do some independent research rather than just believing what the mainstream media tells you. There's lots of sites out there that will tell a different story.

I agree Irene,what a nice looking traditional terrace.


Comment by Hugh Wilson on 17th March 2016 at 14:59
Ab, I've never heard such rubbish. Just what colour is the sky on your planet??


Comment by Vb on 17th March 2016 at 15:59
I passed these lovely houses today and noticed that some of them are lived in. They have a small back garden not much bigger than the backyards of old. There are many ways now of making use of space ie loft space -much better than tall flats anyway. Perhaps lessons have been learned after all! I hope so!


Comment by Carolaen on 17th March 2016 at 17:48
As I have commented on this site before it was a great pity that in the 1960's and 70's the redevelopment of Scholes, Manchester Road etc (where) I grew up did not follow the old pattern of houses right up to the street pavement. The extensive use of swathes of grass embankments (green concrete as some call it) was alien to these parts of Wigan. Ceratinly the new housing could have provided gardens and improved communal space /garages etc to the rear of these properties. The frontages though should have kept to the traditional street format. You have only to compare going along Darlington Street East - which works - to Manchester Road / Rose Bridge which doesn't.

Lot better to look at terraced houses than car sales


Comment by Fred on 17th March 2016 at 20:21
Where is this in whelley ?


Comment by tuddy on 17th March 2016 at 22:57
Fred, They're just after the junction of Vine Street and Whelley.


Comment by Johnny on 18th March 2016 at 00:10
I wonder if there is a jigger (back-alley) behind these properties. Ideal for the Muslim residents to prepare Halal meat!!


Comment by PeterP on 18th March 2016 at 06:29
Fred the site was where A P Coles had their used car sales.


Comment by methinks on 18th March 2016 at 20:31
Gone the full circle with this location, there used to be terraced houses there well before A P Coles Car Sales.


Comment by Vb on 19th March 2016 at 12:01
What I love about this terrace of houses is how well they blend in with all the rest of the surrounding property old and new. There are some lovely new builds on Scholes as well. At last some very talented architects and designers!

Living in one of these as of December 2015, :)
