Definately not, Tom! (regardless of what T.T.S. might say!)

So by getting into Wigan from anywhere, you mean say, from the main traffic lights in Standish to All Saints Church Wigan ?

I'm no expert Wn1 Stanish, you would cross the Dougie at where Central Park was, ( riverside )

I would have thought if I was to take the old Wigan Lane route past the Millstone, Fox & Goose, Royal Oak to the bottom od Standishgate then up to Market St and the Church, unless there's is an underground stream I'm unaware of, this would be the way in ?

It's a trick question!
(Tom's a plumber and knows the water supply frequently crosses, under the road. It follows, you can't go far without crossing water!)

I thought he would have meant natural water courses, rivers, streams, brooks etc
