Bentlegs get off a bus at wigan railway station cross over the road and head towards the town centre go past King Street then take the second side street on your right Bretherton row. Clinic on your right about half way down

Take a ball of string with you. Tie one end of it to the bus stop and unwind it as you go. Tie the other end to the door handle of Meeks Building.
Hey Presto, when you come out, simply follow the string and you'll find your way back to the bus stop.
But, you'll have to ask someone directions anyway, as the bus that stops for you will be going the wrong way!

PS: do you want to borrow a sat-nav?

Others who have a eye test are getting the same letter directing them to new town centre clinic in Bretherton Row which is not as suitable as the previous one which was in the former Boots unit in the Gallaries, but if you have walking dificultities or need parking at a premises, you can telephoned them on the number on the letter and request one which is more suitable to meet your needs.

But if you require parking, you need someone to take you there as you are not to drive home after having the test.

Tonks when I was coming home after having Retinopathy at the Meeks Building I walked down to the station to catch a bus home. At arriving at the station there are three bus shelters and not wishing to jump any queue I ask which one was for the No 10/A and was told use any and when the bus came just signal for it to stop. This I did and only a handful of people got on the bus not a scrum down of people waiting to get this bus

No it's not. It's on your right up some steps.

Don't make Bentlegs any more lost than he already is!

Walk up Wallgate from the station and turn right at the black and white building into Rowbottom Square.
The lady with the pram is about to cross King Street, she’s walking past what was the Minorca.

Gaffer even though the Meeks building is in Rowbottom square you have to go down Bretherton row which leads to the back of the Meeks building for eye tests

Thanks. Perhaps you can point out the actual location on this map for Bentlegs. You can move the map with your finger.

Bretherton Row

Gaffer the entrance is up the ramp on the photo at the front of the range rover. I think Bentlegs has been for his appointment
