Of course,I know where it was Ron,it's other name was The Ropewalk.
Maureen, I always used to wonder where the name came from.
MarieM - Most likely named after the Wilgoose family, who were involved in a lot of different businesses in Wigan in the early 19th century.
Looks like the council added another 'L' to their name, when they had the sign made!
Thanks for that Mick. I will have a look on google. I have never heard of them.
But where is it?
Dave..go down Wallgate,it's the very first turning after Wallgate bridge..it's an alleyway at the back of Great George Street.
Dave..I should have said..the very first turning on your right,going down under Wallgate bridge.
