I'm pretty sure that the colliery narrow gauge railway that is marked on the map "tramway" was what was known as Wigan Pier.
The colliery line was built on legs similar to a sea pier.
Got that from one of Geoff Shryanes books.
You’re right Tommy - it stretched out to a slag heap near to where ASDA is now. Dismantled after meadows colliery shut in 1910.
