Its shame Wigan still as them two mucky Gas tanks sat next to the main railway line

I seem to remember it being said that they where due to be demolished but because the IRA blow up the Warrington ones these where then put back in use.

If I had my way I would get them painted like two big pies people would come from miles around to see them and it would put Wigan on the tourist map it would be our angel of the north.
