This photo of the Windmill Pub also shows the rebuilt Methodist Church further down.
The original church was bombed during the war, the only building in Wigan to be bombed as far as I know.
With a pub on every corner in Scholes at that time ,It seemed a bit harsh to me that the one place in the area that was preaching the evils of drink should flattened.
The Lord certainly moves in mysterious ways when he allowed this to happen!
