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

The original Ben Johnson was a Pembertons Brewery inn.
When Pemberton's was taken over by Walker's, they extended it (the brick extension, with the 'Walkers Ales' on the side).
Then it was bought off Walker's by Oldfield's brewery.
Oldfield's Brewery had the new Ben Jonson built in 1901 / 1902.
