Memories again. A school friend of mine was Rector at the Parish Church, many years ago. He baptised one of my daughters forty years ago and I took him for a communion wine (Oh no, a beer), at the Dog and Partridge afterwards.

Mick, you are giving me so many memories. Please keep them coming.

My Dad , Jack Jowitt used to live at the Dog and Partridge his mother my Grandma Jowitt was the Landlady. Does anyone remember them ?

I've always thought it strange that buildings were constructed in front of the Parish Church. Unless the public house might have been a private house belonging to the church. I'm not clued up about the buildings. It's a really good familiar picture.

The Dog & Partridge was a decent pub for a drink and a chat; one of Wigan's best.
The Ball & Boot (Clog & Pump?) was good for a laugh.
Excellent photo Mick.

Had some pleasant walks through the churchyard.An unchanging scene, and I'm so glad the pub is back to its original name.

Great photo, what Wiganworld is all about.


Comment by britboy on 5th May 2017 at 15:07
I have a framed photo of the pub when it was called Bees Knees , they had window boxes all over the front.
Didn't it have some other names as well, good to see it back with its original name.

I have been unable to post on the forum site for several years but the comment you (Harold) made regarding the food bank queue along with the pathetic individual on Q T is a disgrace. yours truly Preyter Pie!
Hope this is allowed?


Comment by fred foster on 5th May 2017 at 22:45
I read somewhere that the landlord of the pub in the 1800s was transported to Australia for mining coal in the cellar. He was undermining the Parish Church!!


Comment by bryan traynor on 14th May 2017 at 11:00
I was once shown around the cellar which had tunnels leading off in several directions.Also you could see the buttresses of the old parish church.Tunnels possibly used during the Reformation.
