The map shows most of the places under discussion but unfortunately just misses Longshoot

Would be nice if anyone can send in any more photos of the Greenough st area.

Stuart sorry about the delay but after nearly a year I've only just seen this picture! The Clock Face Inn was on Scholes just after the crossing - ie where School Lane crosses Scholes and becomes Warrington Lane. On this picture it's roughly the 4th building on the right hand side going up Scholes,behind it is a gap in the buildings which on my map ( different to this 1907) is called Warrington Lane Terrace. Hope this helps

When I was a lad I used to brag that I knew every street in Wigan. And there it is, EVERY STREET, off Greenough Street facing Turner Street.
