The Way We Were


The Way We Were
Sadly, Wigan Pier's the "Way We Were" museum closed on Thursday 20th December. Here is a photo of the Douglas Bank Signal Box. What will happen to this and the other exhibits?

I never went in! I regret it now.

A great photo of a box for Boxing Day, Brian :-)
Sad to see the museum close - I'd have liked to see it expand instead. Like you, I wonder what will become of the exhibits it housed.

This is such a shame to me too that this museum is closing. I would have gone here right away on my next visit to Wigan, as Wigan Pier as it is today was not there on my last trip over in the '70s. Does anyone know why it is closing?
