Glad to see the building being repurposed. Are there any pubs left at Goose Green?
Is it going to remain a pub or converted to flats or something.
I hope it remains a pub, we've lost so many.
Is it being re-opened as a pub or turned into apartments? I don't know the Goose Green area of Wigan but have always thought "Bentinck Street" an unusual name, with the "ck" coming after an "n"....does anyone know its origin?
No wonder folk left home and hearth for the pub so often. But not forgetting these grand buildings were ‘hotels’ as well?
Peter there's the New Inn across the road and the Freemasons on Clapgate Lane nearby that are still going strong despite everything thrown at them.
Think the plan is to make the Crown into flats, that was reported a while back, don't know if that's still the case.
So many old pubs around town abandoned or demolished, very sad to see.
Read this Irene -
The Labour Club was thee place to go at Goose Green.Big queues to get in good entertainment.
As it got a ghost.
No, Sir Bob...nowhere has...
Back in the mid to late 50s there was a lad in our school (St Pauls) called Julian Turner. He lived in the pub.
It would be nice to see it open again as a pub, its a fine building but I bet they are converting it to flats.
