I am trying to find The Old Manor house Wigan. I have an oak drop leaf occasional table, held together mainly with wooden pegs. It has an old label attached to it saying it came from a beam at the Manor House Wigan but no address. Can anyone help?

The Manor House was just behind Standishgate, Wigan. My husband's family, the Ranicars, lived there in 1901. I believe it was demolished in 1931. There is now a Jobcentre or simialr on the site. It was originally built in the 15thc and a number of objects were made fromt he timbers when it was demolished.
