If it is Winter Hill it's not just Wiganers need it ...it's all part of the scenery for miles and miles around.

Are you sure he wasn’t just making a hidey-hole for himself Mick?

I remember seeing the Leonard Fairclough works yard, it was a long time ago though, I'm sure it could be seen from Wigan Lane (A5106) going to Chorley, so must have been on the A6 going towards Heath Charnock way.

I worked for Leonard Faircloughs when I left school in the early 1970s. Their yard was in Lower Adlington right in the centre with the head office nearby in Chapel St. Leonard Fairclough was still alive and we used to see him being chauffeur driven in his Rolls Royce.
