Is that the chippy on Ratcliffe Road, I used to go there at dinner time in the 70's I was sure Ashtons shop used to be next door to it.

Wonderful photo of Aspull Chippy I see they even have alfresco dining.

We should support these old fashioned English chippys because if we dont the Chinese will be in there selling there muck and all of of the village will stink of deep fried prawn crackers.

It doesn't appear the Germans bombed this one!
Must pop in one day for me lunch, two meat puddings, chips and mushy peas, when I'm in the area sketching!
When asked by a former girl-friend why I always had two meats pudds, I answered it reminds me of you in a state of nakedness!! lol

Years ago I was in the Happy Palace not enjoying a meal.

Giovanni, with all due respect, to my knowledge never in my time and i know i am a few years older than you, have Babbys Yeds, or, in your case your former girlfriends breasts been known as MEAT puddings, they are STEAK puddings, or probably to give them their full title, steak and kidney puddings. Regarding your 'Germans'comment, were you referring to the joke about the prostitute who opened a chip shop during WW2? Bombed after a few weeks, rebuilt and notice appeared on door, Due to Hitler, chips will be littler. Bombed again, same thing happened, next notice said, Due to Himmler fish will be similar, after the 3rd bombing notice read, Due to Goring, gone back to whoring.

Maybe they've realised your not that funny like you think you are.

Giovanni, I have been away for the weekend and only just catching up with Wigan World, and it's DINNER in Wigan, lad , not "lunch"! My grand-daughter played "chippy" at our house last week, and it was great to see a little girl playing as I and my friends used to, instead of on these ipod things all the time.....I showed her how to make a paper cone out of the Wigan Observer, I made cardboard fish and sausages, she scooped up my clothes-pegs as chips, and used ceramic baking-beans for peas, and she had the time of her life!
