The Sir Thomas Gerard
Those street bollards are everywhere.
Wonder how many there are in the Wigan area. Google gives a lot of info and they are not cheap.
For info on Sir Thomas Gerard, copy and paste :-
Gerard street is one of the best and cleanest shopping areas in the borough of Wigan, no comparison with Market street, Hindley.
How time changes things, the last time I was around there that pub was a supermarket.
At 6-15am sat morning gerard st and near the taxi rank on wigan rd where full of litter
Cyril,yes it was a Kwik Save store,prior to that being built,it wasThe Congarational Church known to one and all as "The Cons".
Its presence dominated Gerard Street,for more than a century .
Think those bollards are to stop ramraids ?
why have a pop at Hindley ,i know its not what it used to be but leave us alone ..
Looks nice during the day...Just wait until the dregs turn out at night. One of the most violent places in Wigan. If you don't believe me ask Wigan police.
Thank you for this photo - I walked this area many a time when visiting my English family. Brings back fond memories. I remember that it was a supermarket, too.
I stopped going to Ashton at night after I was thrown through a shop window by a group of yobs. Pride was hurt more than anything else. However, if it hadn't been for a group of elderly blokes intervening, It could have been much worse.
There is no taxi rank on wigan rd l
