Clever. I like that. And each one open for business. Nor are they on a town centre street/road. Only in Wigan? Has Leigh, Standish or Ashton got a similar scene?

Great photo, I think the pub on the left was Brian McTigue's local when he played for Wigan Rugby.

Nice to see pubs in such close proximity - I think Scholes used to hold the record for the most pubs on one road back in the day. A sign of a very close community! These days not needed it seems.

Helen, that was Belle Vue street and that was at the top of Tunstall lane where the Ravine Club is at present. Nowhere near the Belle Vue pub was
