That's a lovely little stone building. It would make a nice granny flat.
Provided you got rid of a life's worth of accumulated stuff. Wonder if there's room for an Aga..

Good photo Mick. There's another one similar, as you probably know, at the other end of Beech walk near St Maries.

wigan council will demolish it like whot they have done to the town center

Oh, I hope so, janet - it's a really ugly building. They could replace this hovel with a proper house.
Sadly, however, as it's private property, the Council won't get the chance.

It could do with demolishing.

Lived in Standish and me and my boyfriend used to catch the last bus to Standish and got off there. The bus carried on to Pepper Lane and waiting for it used to spend many a time enjoying a few extra kisses whilst waiting for it. I ran into the house and boyfriend caught the last bus to Wigan. He had missed his last bus home and then had to walk. He never complained but that’s when gentlemen were gentlemen. So that picture brought up a few very happy memories.
