I live in Canada now but try to visit Wigan as often as I can afford to. But I'll swear those two guys standing to the left of Morrisons are always there. I see them every time I shop at the store.

What a beautiful sharp photograph.
There are few places in Wigan centre these days where modern architecture looks great, but this is one of them.

The clock tower looks as if it has been transplanted from a mill building....so obviously 'they' can get something right & in keeping with what was a mill town. Those lovely red bricks....I think its a great photo & clocktower.

Good shot David, I have been down in that market tons of times, liked Paulines second hand book stall.
