by sandysmith

The centre of the town is the old market square. Where the original markket cross would have been is now replaced with a modern art design which also celebrates its Royal Charter received from King Henry III in 1246.

Entertainment Quarter

by sandysmith

Wigan has more pubs in one square mile than any other North West town! Kings street, just up on the right from Wigan North Western station, is where the entertainment centre of Wigan can be found. Many club and bars here - - many iin former theatres of picture houses like this on the County Playhouse. Just in front of this is another art design. This one is called Footlights and was only installed in 2001 but already in poor shape and needing repair....

Local Legend of Mabs Cross

by sandysmith

Sir William Bradshaw of Haigh.
A knight of some renown.
Married a young girl from Blackrod and Haigh.
On the outskirts of old Wigan town.

Sir William, he had to go away.
To fight in some war.
It may have been Bannockburn.
Or it could have been further afar.

Now, it's said he was taken prisoner.
But what we don't know is, how long.
All that we know is, he never came home.
About that they can't be far wrong.

Anyway, ten years went past.
And William never came home.
And Mabel, thinking him dead.
Started seeing this other man.

Apparently, there had been a rebellion.
Against Edward the second, no doubt.
And this welshman called Osmund.
Was in his good books for helping him out.

He reckoned he'd been granted possession.
Of Haigh Hall, Well, that's what he said.
And Mabel, she had to move out.
Unless she accepted to wed.

Now, to save herself and her children.
From beggery and financial ruin.
She had to use her head and feminine whiles.
In short, just watch what she's doing.

She was forced to marry the welshman.
Lady Osmund her title.
She could'nt do anything about it.
Safety of the family was vital.

At the end of ten years or so.
She was giving out bread, one fine day.
When one man approached,for his piece of bread.
And revealed he was William of Haigh.

Now, Mabel she recognised William.
In shock, she let out a cry.
And Osmund, when he heard about it.
He grabbed her and smacked her in the eye.

Now William he bided his time.
His bite was worse than his bark.
And then he waylaid this Osmund.
And killed him outside Newton Park.

The troubles of William and Mabel.
Were not over, one has to say.
For slaying the welsh knight at Newton.
He was outlawed a year and a day.

Now, Mabel for unwitted bigamy.
Even in spite of her loss.
Had to walk barefoot from Haigh Hall to Wigan.
Each week to a place called Mab's Cross.

Not just a Pie(r)

by grimbolero

Wigan is a proud town in the North West of England, between Manchester and Liverpool. It has heritage which means a lot to the locals, but it has to be said, this isn't a holiday destination.
It is worth visiting, though, for the industrial archeology at the Pier or if you want to find the origins of Northern Soul.
