Millgate


Millgate
Stables Brasserie taken last Sunday morning during a stroll around town. Owners David and Jeanne Lancashire have won the 'Start-Up Business of the Year' award for Wigan, well done - the food is great. I love the old building and the brickwork, its one of Wigan's few historic gems.

They have made the new build at the end of Millgate blend in with the old.

This small area shows just what can be done to preseve Wigan town.Far better than the 'knock it down and build an eyesore'mentality that often prevails.An excellent photograph that illustrates this point,

Is this part of the 'original' Millgate. The Millgate I knew in the 60s and 70s?
