Wigan is the largest town within the Metropolitan Borough of Wigan. Nestled along the banks of the River Douglas, Wigan is a haven of history and natural beauty. Wigan is 20 miles away from Manchester on the M61. It is fortunate enough to have two stations servicing the area. Wigan Wallgate and Wigan North Western are 110 yards away from each other on either side of Wallgate Street. Wigan Bus Station on Market Street reopened in 2018 and is just 400 yards from the train stations.
Wigan was once part of the Celtic territory, which was then taken over by the Romans. But Wigan’s true rise to popularity was spurred in the Industrial era where it became an epicentre for mining. Today, Wigan town is cloaked in culture, historical relics, and ancient woodlands.
Visitors can learn about Wigan’s background when touring the Museum of Wigan Life on Library Street. This museum is set in an Elizabethan Revival building and is home to over 30,000 artefacts from the past.
Further information on Wigan’s past can be found at Wigan Pier between Wallgate and Pottery Road. Cobblestone footpaths give way to tracks of an old narrow-gauge railway and Georgian-era buildings. George Orwell’s book “Road to Wigan Pier” was deeply influenced by this landscape.
Adjacent to the Wigan Pier along Heritage Way is the Trencherfield Mill. Constructed in 1907, this building was the hub of cotton production. To see the 110-year-old engine work its magic, visit the mill on “Steaming Day”, which usually occurs once or twice a month.
The Old Courts is a Victorian courthouse on Crawford Street. Today, the courthouse is a non-profit multidiscipline art centre.
History buffs tend to have large collections of priceless artefacts. These need to be stored in clean, dry areas to maintain their integrity. We at easyStorage are here to assist with our easyPods that can be carefully packed under your direction. Store your precious possessions in our high-security storage facility. Our premises are monitored by 24/7 CCTV surveillance.
Along with historical sites, Wigan has many restaurants to choose from. John Bull Chophouse on Coopers Row is one of Wigan’s oldest and most cherished spots. Their cask ales and craft beers have earned them an excellent reputation. Caffe Rosso on Wigan Lane offers classic cafe cuisine and delectable coffee. Revolution Bar on King Street serves pizza and burgers. At night, the restaurant becomes a cosy club with DJs and an outdoor terrace.
Part of Wigan’s appeal also lies in its vast verdant spaces. Haigh Woodland Park on School Lane is one of Wigan’s most cherished outdoor retreats. This 350-acre park belongs to the medieval grounds of Haigh Hall. From golf and high ropes courses to miniature railways and walking trails, this is a sanctuary for all.
In town, Mesnes Park is a Victorian-era estate that entails manicured lawns, rose gardens, and a bronze statue of Sir Francis Sharpe Powell.
Hikers can head over to Wigan Flashes Local Nature Reserve on Wellham Road. Here, you can witness a diversity of biomes and animals, as well as many walking trails.
For those who prefer to stay indoors, Wigan has several entertainment centres. Visit the Wigan Little Theatre on Crompton Street for outstanding theatrical performances. If you prefer music, the Wigan Live Festival occurs annually. This two-day musical event is completely free of charge.
If you’d like to rent your home to festival-goers, let us know! With flexible short-term self storage solutions, you’ll be able to store your possessions without hassle. With just two days’ notice, we’ll have your belongings back in place when you’re ready for them.
