Simon Radcliffe's photo archive of Wigan Borough


An ongoing project to document  every corner of our beautiful and historic town for present and future generations. Here you'll find images of industrial archaeology sites, parks, monuments, landmarks, historic buildings, green spaces and photos of the entire Wigan stretch of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal. Please share and download as many images as you like for your pleasure, and check back often for regular updates to the archive. I've captured over 5,000 images so far as a homage to my hometown.
