Both the local papers, the Examiner and Observer have billboards outside.
On the placard on the door. It reads A Wiggin for Wigan I wonder what that could refer to, has anybody got any ideas ???
Hi Tom, just seen this post - I wonder if the newspaper reference was a "sporting" reference to football or rugby - just a thought.
I've just found out that Log Cabin Tobacco (notice on window) - which I'd never heard of - is still sold, made in Denmark but apparently also made by Lambert and Butler over here (perhaps on licence) - it's pipe tobacco but some seem to think it is also used for RYO (roll your own). I wouldn't know not being a smoker myself.
