I had a Quick hour and a half lunch hour today and visited Wigan to go Revolution Bar for meal. Knowing I was a League fan I thought- ten minutes in, ten minutes out- an Hour Luch. No issue. What a Nightmare getting into Wigan is....One Road in, One road out...Total Disaster.

What other town can Rival the one road predicament that is Wigan

there are at least 5 roads into wigan town center, such as hallgate, wallgate, stairgate, bishopgate, and millgate.

I look around
I search the skies
I shade my eyes
So nearly blind
And I see signs of half remembered days
I hear bells that chime in strange familiar ways
I recognise...
The hope you kindle in your eyes

The new road layout around Wigan pier has been something of a revelation, even though its not 100% complete, you should have visited 12 months ago, then you'd have had something to complain about!

On Friday 28th March I'm taking part in the Wigan Streetsleep, raising money for The Brick charity who try to ensure nobody in Wigan finding themselves homeless spends a 2nd night on the streets and providing help and support via a foodbank.  Every penny counts so if you can spare anything at all its much appreciated - this link will take you to my sponsorship page thanks.

I had a Quick hour and a half lunch hour today

We are lucky if we get half an hour in the NHS, barely enough time to have a sandwich or micro left-overs so stop moaning about a ###### 90 min lunch "Quick?"

I see the HDM report now says it caused lengthy tailbacks.

They must have been working on that one all night.
