wor a bleedin shame, not because of the demise of the pub, but the dereliction of a fine building
what a waste i wish some one wood do something with it
Oh dear, what a shame
So sad to see such another great pub go to rack and ruin. Iused to drink there during the 70s, then on to the beer keller. What happened to it.
Another good building going under Wigan Council's demolition hammer I suppose ? When will they wake up ?
used to have some great meals there years ago ,sad to see it going down .
What has it to do with the council Helen, they don't own it!
If somebody wants to buy it and do it up they can! Not a great location but the anvil does well - could be a good b&B
Sad to see it like that had many a pint in there, Christmas do's and one of the best Jazz festival gigs down stairs watching the Honeythives in the 90s. That was when the Jazz festival was good and all around the town centre in pubs and clubs day & night.
omg things av sooo changed in wigin that used to be the posh pub when we used to do our rounds back in the 70s wor a shame nowt the same now nor even in ashton in makerfield
