Photo-a-Day (Thursday, 6th September, 2018)
Very surprised that it is still opened today with all of the pubs keeps closing, it must be doing well.
That's it Julie, pubs that don't do well close. The Amberswood tavern near Ince park has closed, after locals tried their best to save it. Looks like a nice pub as well, with good parking.
Know this pub but cant think where it is.
Glad to see it is still open, especially as it dates from 1700 ! My daughter's friend is married to a lad who used to live here.
Sam h. It's just past the Canal bridge in New Springs on the left hand side as tough towards Aspull.
When I lived in Scholes (left Wigan in 1970) this pub was always referred to as The Stone Alehouse despite the Colliers Arms Sign. Is it still l called that ?
Cut the price of ale, then folk will go out to the pubs.

I'm surprised it's still standing never mind still opened! When you consider its over 300 years old!
Another good photo, Ron. I don't know this pub, but a brilliant video, Mick.
Makes you proud to be from Wigan...
Great atmosphere in the video of the pub.
It would be interesting to know if the building was a coaching inn at one time and if it had a different name, as it is on a main road. I imagine it was somehow.
Not sure about whether or not it was a coaching inn but it does have walls made of wattle and daub.
Elizabeth - I bet it's warm in Winter with all that 'wattle and daub'!
