King Street as you've never seen it before!


Ian and I were up very early last Saturday morning to record this revealing drone video of Wigan's historic King Street, sadly in a sorry state of decay. 

We've provided this footage to Wigan Local History and Heritage Society along with over 50 accompanying images. Historic England has backed plans to create a Heritage Action Zone on King Street within the Wigan Town Centre Conservation Area with an investment of around £2m. 

The conservation area was first designated in 1980 and covers around 10 hectares of the town centre.
