Higher Incers V Lower Incers

First topic message reminder :

Where's the boundary?

Is there one?


I wise man once wrote:


The boundary between Lower Ince and Higher Ince doesn't exist, apart from in the minds of the locals.


Here

And I bet the vast majority of either camp will say they live in Wigan. affraid

I draw your attention to the Higher and Lower Lane reference to Sunday walks to church.

They reckon Ince is a Welsh word for 'island'. There's a few Inces. Two are mentioned in the Domesday book, but Ince in Makerfield isn't.

So, who're you blaming it on?  Lower Incers?  or Higher Incers?

Wiganers don't do such things.

The boundary of Higher and Lower is the bridge at Christ Church/Ince Parish church. Boundary Street off Warrington Road Ince/Wigan.

Lower Incers are soft sods. Laughing

Lower Ince is the rough part of Ince where you sleep with your vest on.

Higher Ince is the posh part of Ince where you get out of the bath to have a wee!!!!!!!!!!!
