Started by: Perkin Warbeck (1458)

Came across this story, I can remember being told about this by one of the Christian Brothers at Blessed John Rigby around 1960.

What's that got to do with the History of Wigan?

Marie the original building caught fire in the 1850s if memory serves. A rebuilt version is now broken down into small apartments I think. Did you see the old drawing now on page 2 of Album?

I can't remember last week, never mind 150 years ago!

Flaggy, I have just had a look. These old buildings fasinate me to think how did they build them so long ago when they didn't have the tools that they have today.
