The pub is called Fifteen, Golden Bear.

It definitely was Stretton's. I used to go there for paint and wallpaper. It was a very good shop and Les Stretton was really helpful. I miss that shop.

Hello, Golden Bear.

Unfortunately, there are no paint and wallpaper shops in Pem now. The only wallpaper shop that I know of in Wigan is down Library Street.

Oh, yes I did mean Wallpaper Supplies.

The last time I was in Wigan was in 2008, so it just goes to show how out of touch I am. What a pity. That was a good shop too.

The old British Queen pub became Pemberton Lighting, it was on the corner of Ormskirk Road and Wardley Street, it was demolished and a row of shops and flats were built in it's place.
