Containing data on Health, Employment & Housing in Wigan

Orwell Notes


BBC Arena film - Road to Wigan Pier

Some great interviews with Wigan folk that met Orwell, also gives a 1983 window into Wigan life when the film was made.

Some good archive material.

The Wigan interest starts after 15 mins, although first 15 mins is interesting
