Krystal, The Black Swan is long gone, as are most of the pubs in Scholes. If you click on photo's of Wigan, then albums, then places, and scroll down to Scholes, there are plenty of photo's of Scholes, maybe the Black Swan is on one of them.

The Black Swan was on Scholes ( that is both the name of the area and the main road passing through it) between Upper Morris Street and Greenhough Street .

Almost all of Scholes was demolished and rebuilt mid / late 60s
