History of Wigan (Help with ancient and recent history.)
Do you classify Orrell as being in Wigan? (I don't, by the way!)
If you do, I had a building in Orrell which was built in 1718. It had a stone which said so. (Billinge Biker knows the one!)
Some buildings on Marketplace, in Wigan, were found to have parts of them bearing the original 'wattle and daub' dating back to the 14th century.
They belonged to Tom Standish, the last remaining member of the 'Standish' family.
