Plenty of cobbles, but not a 'lawn' in sight. :o)
Thank you for your photo, Steve. I wonder how many street surfaces in the Wigan borough are still cobbled?

Isn't that one of the few, if not the only, cobbled street left in Wigan now? Great shot.

Keeble Street in Ince is another to retain the original road surface.

Been away from Wigan for nearly 25 years but can still remember driving over cobbled streets. Great photo

My father Eric was born in this street and I lived there briefly with my parents and brother John after my grandmother died. A lot of water has flowed under the bridge since then!
