It`s many years ago when I bowled on this green & wonder if this green is the only pub green left in Wigan.

Very nice..not knowing that part of Wigan well, I never knew there was a bowling green there..Bet there aren't many of those around anymore..

Great shot, first time I've seen over the wall too. By the way Ernest Pyke, are you the guy that worked at Walker bros (walmsleys) many moons ago.

Yes, Derek, I`m the chap you mention. This pub is now `The Famous Pagefield`. Does anyone know when it became famous?

My aunt lived at 78 Park road, as children we used to get on the stepladder and watch the bowling.
My Dad Jim Molyneux often bowled there.
I live in Forida USA and love to see these pictures. Lot's of memories.
