Wigan Brick Terraces

Wigan's surviving brick terraces hark back to its days as a thriving mill town and coal mining centre in the 19th century.

Immortalized in George Orwell's The Road To Wigan Pier, which focused on the poverty of the town's industrial workers in the 1930s, Wigan has preserved much of its industrial heritage, including the famous pier on the Liverpool-Leeds Canal.
