This has been a Grade 2 listed building since 11 July 1983.

Now that they are going to make this building the center of The Council will they replace the tower on the top corner that is missing or as the stone work gone the way of many things belonging to this council,misplaced,lost,stolen,thrown way,or just discarded.

Exellent photo dave.

As it's only Grade 2 I think they'll just be keeping the frontage and gutting the actual building.

You can see the tower, which coccium mentions, on the Technical College photo in the Old Gallery of Photos of Wigan.
