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

Does anyone know the exact location of the ancient Westwood House and when it was demolished. People keep directing me to Westwood Hall, which isn't the same building. It was owned by the Walmesley family and was quite a big building as they employed servants and also had a chapel attached. Ron Hunt has put a very good photo of it on here from an old postcard but it is wrongly labelled Hall instead of house.
