History of Wigan   (Help with ancient and recent history.)

Interestingly I do not know of any 'cobbled streets 'in Wigan or around the NW.
Wigan had sett paved streets, being quarried stone and shaped to size normally a cube,
Cobbles are natural rounded stones usually from river or coastal locations.
Having said all this I was born in a cobbled street in Wigan and always referred to it as such.
