Great site,very easy to navigate. I will recommend it to people who want to know more about wigan, although many people still remember the all nighters at wigan pier.

Good luck with the site.

Really enjoyed your site Brian.Nice and easy to find your way around. Loved all the pictures, and there was so much information I didn't know.
I was born in Wigan and came out to Australia 38 years ago. I have had a lovely trip down memory lane, thankyou.

Very impressed with your site. I was born in Wigan and emigrated in 1963 and am now researching my family history. Particularly interested in the Wigan Observer stories and the photographs.

I love your web page! Wonderful pictures. My great-great grandfather came to America from Wigan in the 19th Century. I hope to visit the city sometime soon. I would love to hear from anyone from Wigan. Great Page.

Thank you for your comments on my website. I, therefore, had to come and look at your site as I am very nosey. I have to say your site is fantastic. It all looks really professional and the content is excellent. I particularly loved your old photo gallery. I really knew nothing about Wigan before I visited your site but, despite this, found your site really interesting and enjoyable. You must have spent lots of time on the website to get it as good as this. Well done!

I laughed like crazy at the Wigan dialect stuff. Most of it I could understand, but I don't use it. I really like your web site.

I've only had a quick browse so far but it seems pretty interesting to me.
I lived in Wigan for 18 years, and liked it and its people. I'm not a Wiganer but was fonder of Lancashire than my own region, the north-east. My son Paul, now at university, is still a Latics fan despite not having lived in the town for many, many years.

Brian, thank you for the news. I've been reading for a couple of weeks. How about trotting out your camera for even more photos of the Wigan area? Would love to see them. Thanks for your hard work.

Enjoyed looking through your site. While not an ex-Wiganner(?), I did study geology at Wigan Mining & Technical College in 1954-55!!
Does anyone remember a Wigan lass named Joan Ellis whose parents had a "baccy" shop in Wigan in the immediate post-war years? Joan was a very good swimmer and swam competetively in the Wigan area in the late 40's, early 50's. She would be about 65 years old now.
