I believe it was opened on 16th Oct, but can't find any news  or info. Anybody know anything? Its nice to see it being preserved for future generations.

I concur. It looks good, the wall has been rebuild and a new road into it has been opened up.

A gem that has been hidden for a long time.

Really nice to see it.

You get a good view from the top end of the bus station.

I'd have thought if there was a grand opening ceremony the WEP would have been on it?

He isn't only of 'terrace' fame.  He held all the land in Wigan, probably!
