Bailey's Court? Is that one of the synthetic new names dreamt up by councillors who, over many years, have lined their pockets by destroying Wigan's REAL architectural heritage? God rot the ********!
Wonder what was around that gatepost many years ago, a field, a house ?
As for your councillors...seems to me you need some new ones !
Hi Brian are you from Land Street ?
Good picture by the way, is that off Hallgate where the slaughter house used to be and Burns glass cutting place ?
How many of you constantly moaning about the council can be bothered to vote in the local elections
Well said, Jack...I would like to add..."or joined the Save Wigan Campaign"....
Very interesting photo, as well..Brian.
Hear hear, Jack. If they do vote, they vote the same incompetemts back in anyway.
Good pic, Brian. walked past that a mirriad times.
Michael, Bailey's Court is the name of a large area on the 1891 Ordinance Survey map.
Hi John D, yes Land street is where I am from, are you John D of Scot street?
what a very interesting pic (not)you could of blurred the car reg number out. if i were a thief i now know what car im gonna do over now.
It will still be parked there regardless of number plate blurring, the car belongs to the Army recruitment officer.
Good luck in stealing it.
Yes, I stand corrected about the name Bailey's Court.
But my opinion of the venality and corruption of certain Wigan councillors over the years remains unaltered.
Their greed has damaged the town beyond recall.
Yes I am How can we get in touch ?
