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

Started by: StuartRal (1) 

I live in the Nottingham area and I'm researching my wife's maternal ancestry through the Wych family.
According to the 1871 census, her Great Grandfather was living at 77 Poolstock Lane and the entry is annotated as the Eckersley Arms.
I'm also in possession of a photo of the Eckersley Arms but bit concerned it might be a different building as I understand there have been many changes on Poolstock/Poolstock Lane over the years.
Can anyone clarify please ? This is my first post so unsure how to share the photo.
