Higher Incers V Lower Incers

on Tue 2 Jan 2018 - 0:00
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

Well, you can't accuse me of stirring it up.

Blame Ray when the bother starts.


Best get the wriggly tin out.

That photo is Cable Street not Keble Street, the wriggly tin I used to kick was on Belle Green Lane. Very Happy

Perhaps the V in the title was a bit inappropriate, Jo anne.


I shouldn't like the Incers to get agate of each other

You Wiganers and your gates, Corky! Very Happy

We do have garden, yard and lock gates in Ince. And was Ince Bar once a toll gate? 

Were/are there any more?Question

Always thought it was the railway bridge. As a kid, wandering over the bridge was almost as dangerous as going to Leyth.

As a lad from up Belle Green Lane I always made sure me Docs were fastened tight when going over the bridge.


Just so they didn't fall off I had to run back pretty sharpish. Smile

They didn't have Docs when you were a lad, Joseph. Clogs, yes. But not Docs? Laughing

Whilst chatting to an elderly couple recently they asked where I lived and when I said Ince mentioned how they’d met a man who’d “mithered” them that Lower Ince is actually higher than Higher Ince.

I wonder if it was anyone we know? Very Happy

In which case I hope they didn't ask about Roman activity and coal mining in the Millgate area. Very Happy

I suspect they were mithered enough to dig any further, Corky.

The Etymology of Higher and Lower Ince - Wikid
“The modern day names derive from the original ‘Hiah Ince’ and ‘Helloer Ince’, both being a nod to the friendly nature of all Incers.” Smile

Ha!  Very Happy   Not Guilty M'Lud!!   I'd remember that!

However,  I was up at a caravan park near Guy's Thatched Hamlet last week.  Mrs. Tonks was with me.   The couple who's caravan I was measuring had a bit of a Bolton / Leyth accent.
I asked them if they were from Bolton, Atherton or Leigh?
"Noooo-ooo", she said, "we're from Wigan,  it's houw Wiganers souwnd"!
"Oh., " said Mrs Tonks, "I'm from Wigan. Earl Street, originally, then Shevington, then we moved back to Wigan. Beech Hill".

"Noooo-ooo", said the woman, "we're from Abram"!


Got my goat, did that!   "that's not Wigan", I said, "that's Abram"!

The man then said, "well, it's not Wigan touwn centre, burrits under Wigan couwncil"!


Aye, well, you can't put owt where there is nowt, so I just gorron wit'job in hand!    Rolling Eyes

No, but they knew the area as they’d had family who lived there.
