How old was that building?
Why is it being demolished?
a lovely building like that should have lasted hundreds of years what a waste
Another superb building destroyed yet again by Wigan Labour council, They have ruined the town, Please do not leave your house unoccupied or it will not be there when you get back, Labour councils are ruthless,
What a waste.A sad moment in time captured.
One can only blame the people who keep voting them in.
What a sad site that is, such ashame to lose the childrens library :(
just been up there today 22/8/09
and its all gone
what a waste
Let the Wigan public vote them out the next time ,Greengrass Turner, Mc Cartney, etc etc, £60,000 a year and still never satisfied, A lot of the decent and honest people of this town can do the job a whole lot better, Let us soon be rid of them,
This image shows a very cavalier attitude towards rate and taxpayers of the area but just like bank managers those responsible are never brought o book for their actions.It is one of the most disgraceful sights I have seen in the town of Wigan.
The replacement will be superb!
Most Wiganners won't like it though. Because it's new and modern and they like a good moan anyway :-)
Simply turn out in numbers and vote the thick Labour councillors out once and for all
Why has it been demolished?
Like the U.K. Gov.,Dave,you just don't get it.
It has been demolished so the new joint service centre can be built which will house both adults and childrens libraries, swimming pool etc. The building is only around 20 years old but it was jerry built, the roof leaked very badly.
Then it's to be hoped that the same builder isn't given the new contract,ourmaude.All buildings are inspected during and after construction so what happened here to create this very costly mistake.I am just responding to one very negative comment.
I never realized that the childrens library was being demolished !!! what on earth are wigan council thinking about ??? that building cant be that old. An eysore like the old police station still remains ! why ???
OURMAUDE, I went in there every week for years, non of the staff ever mentioned about leaks, that was a sperb building, destroyed so the idiotic council can build a minature swimming pool only fit for under fives, I bet Greengrass Turner and his cronies will do allright out of it,
Just for the record,ourmaude,By 'negative comment'I was not refering to yours which was fair comment.
Wot a nice building to be demolished, they should demolish Millgate council offices the ugly looking concrete building, which is a blot on the landscape
Don't give them ideas Paul, they'll be spending millions on that next.
Broke the record with this one,Dave.
Who said the people don't care?
"rape" of our towns continue I see
Watch out Earlestown (Town Hall) and Newton (green belt - Parkside) you'll be next
Roll on The People's Revolution!!!
Surprised the whole lot didn't catch fire first. That's what normally happens. Low Hall, Whitley High School, Wigan Casino, Park Rd Farm barn. Sure others can add to this list.
Gone just like many other useful buildings. Wigan as changed so much and although you can't stand in the way of progress why have so many council dwellings have been pulled down? Plattbridge, Hindley, Scholes and Worsley Mesnes had half of their estates demolished. It's no wonder there is a shortage of council houses! another thing is the amount of trees? I do like trees and although there was still many around you used to be able see for miles around years ago, now your lucky to see a few hundred yards. Derek Rudd
