Photo-a-Day (Thursday, 13th March, 2014)
Another fine old pub closed down.
Last time I went in there it took too long to get served.
last time i was in there when there was a wigan world meet ,it was pretty packed then
I had a lot of good times here, on Fridays, many years ago. Was always packed then - happy days!
Garry, you've obviously never been to Central Park?
Central Park don't exist!!!
For a much older photo see:- Album, Places, Standishgate, Page 3, 3rd on top row.
An old photo of a bowls trip in a charabanc in front of the Royal Oak is in Album, Assorted, Outings, 1st on 2nd row.
If you're old enough Garry...
It was always known as "Billy Woods's)

Nice looking pub....yes Jean I agree...cheers!!!!
Fred Grimes car sale's was in their back yard in the 1950's
Why don't people say..WIGAN LANE" then we know where we are!
Why say Wigan Lane when it's Standishgate
Wasn't Fred Grimes on the opposite side at one time?
Wigan Lane it is. Fred Grimes was on Wigan Lane, thanks David.
Art..The address is: Royal Oak. 106 Wigan Lane, WN1 2LF. Art, I'm always right.
Royal Oak Wigan
111-113 Standishgate Wigan, Lancashire WN1 1XL‎
Pub · Today 4:00 pm – 12:00 am
A traditional pub, close to Wigan town centre. Noted for real ales, real music and real people. Mayflower Brewery is located at The Royal Oak
I think if you go for a pint at 106 Wigan Lane, you'll find yourself in the Bowling Green Hotel in Swinley
Garry...Always wrong ;o)
My slight mistake, it should read WN6 8LJ Royal Oak Wigan Lane.
WN1 1XL is Worsley Terrace. Wrong again, Art. Once again I'm right.
Wrong again Garry
Wigan Lower Road
Standish Lower Ground
Memo: When in a hole, stop diggin'
There's a good lad
WN6 8LJ...WIGAN LANE!
Wanna bet? WN6 8LJ is 300 yards from my front door.
WN1 1XL is Standishgate
WN1 1XL MIGHT BE STANDISHGATE, but WN6 8LJ is WIGAN LANE. Stop being such an old fool. Final answer.
The last time I was there; was ten mins before I got married. Dutch cur.
