|Wigan Pier. All of it.|
We initially headed for downtown Wigan but veered off just before the high street and parked near an old steam museum and converted apartment blocks. To be fair the stroll along the tow-path to the pier and the surrounding canalside area are nice enough and made for a very pleasant Sunday morning walk, but the pier itself is long gone. All that remains is a slight hump in the tow-path and the two iron rails you can see in the photo.

|Rivington Pike (and fancy camera setting!)|
this website, definitely worth a look if you're interested in the area.

As we made our way back towards the car I told Steve that if I won the lottery I'd fix the gardens and make them fabulous again. His answer suggested that, in his view, Lord Leverhulme was not the only everso slightly bonkers person around. There's no pleasing some people.
