History of Wigan (Help with ancient and recent history.)
Next to the Baptist Church was the Shakespeare Pub (the Hippodrome at the side had already been demolished). I used to go the Shakespeare in 1970. It had a big coal fire burning in winter. There were photos on the wall of stars who had appeared at the Hippodrome. I think Lennon's Supermarket was built on the site and the TSB was built there too. Across the road on the corner of King Street and Rodney Street were the Borough Courts, which was also the Town Hall before they moved.
