Places   (Help with places, streets and buildings in Wigan.)

Took my Mum for a ride round today and went to see how the building work was going on in the brew. Well what a shock for Mum who said they were spoiling the whole area. As well as the houses being built in the field beneath the graveyard there are more houses being built near the house on Slater's pen! Another big surprise was a house being built on the site of the shale rook and Bill Job's garage behind where we lived when I was little. Was speaking with one of the builders and he said they came across the footings of the cottages which were on Pig Street. I took a couple of photos and hope to put them on here. I know nothing stays the same but it was touching to see so much change. Well at least we have our memories.
