In the 50's and 60's Jimmy gillet had a fish cart, he used to deliver fresh fish round Wigan , He's famous for making Bryn smell realy bad on a Friday, As young boy I remember there was a row of houses at the top of Rose Hill and they named it Finney Addy row, Because all the houses in that row bought finny Haddock from Jimmys fish cart, a yellow fish which they boiled and it stunk to high heaven, The smell was there every Friday,

lyrics to Finny Addy Row,


there's a place I know
called finny Addy row
and everyone knew
on top of rag brew

on friday night
Jimmy Gillet would call
and sell them fresh fish
off his market cart

they made quite a smell
Rose hill was like hell
people crossing the road
as fast as their feet would go

Its all been knocked down
and the smell it has ceased
jimmy gillets gone too
he's resting in peace,

Very Happy
