How sad !
If Wigan Council is really interested in the town's heritage they need to spend some some money on these chapels -if only to stabilise the situation for a few years until more funding is available. Soon they'll crumble to the ground and be lost forever.
The scaffold has a Cathedral effect.
I wonder if the council is deliberately letting them get into a state where it would be dangerous to leave them standing,therefore giving them a reason to demolish them?
if you think that this council is going to spend money on projects like this you live in a fantasy world
Irene hit it on the head by suggesting that if they let the buildings go to ruin(grade 2 listed in a lot of cases) they can demolish them.
the old town hall in king street being a prime example
"SADLY IT TURNED OUT THAT THE CONTRACTORS HAD THE WRONG CHAPEL"
Bet they were a tad miffed - PMSL!!!!
Bet they get plenty work
