proved to be a great addition to the Wigan drinking scene....but must admit I prefer the beer in the later opened 'Tap N'Barrel' up' town

The airship was the Hindenburg Mick. Another good shot Rachel.

Amongst other things Heidelberg is a high quality printing press.
Very nice piccy Rachel.

We are getting confused with the word Heidelberg and Hindenburg. Hindenburg was the name of the famous German air ship. Heidelberg in Town in Germany, they make printing presses, cement and so on, there's a river called Heidelberg.
Not been in there yet, must give it a try.
