“Classic very rare BBC series from 1983. The late poet/writer Pete Morgan, a Leyther, travels all the way from Liverpool to Hull by water on a variety of craft, narrating the history of the waterways he travels along as he goes. 5 episodes were made.”

Wigan features from 12:30 onwards on Ep1 pt1 then till 3:20 of Ep1 pt2,
though the whole series is a wonderful watch. Smile

The Leeds and Liverpool wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for Wigan ...
