Default Abandoned Restaurant, Wigan - Nov 11 - 19-11-2012, 23:26

I think this was a Chinese Restaurant although I beleive the building has been used for many things over the years. At the moment it aint used for anything!

And a couple of externals if possible. I've added the date, let me know if you know the place's name.

Sorry for forgetting the date. I should have known that. It was only a week or so ago so it was October 2012. I will go back this week for the externals.
I don't actually know what it was called but I think I can find out.

Not much of a report, and not much of a place by the look of it, BUT..your pics are great, you really have a feel/eye for photography. I look forward to seeing some other stuff, get yourself out there!!

yeah sorry about the crap report but I knew very little about the building. I have found out a bit more now. I have also taken some external shots. They need a bit of processing before they make it here but I will add them.

It was an Indian Restaurant not a Chinese one (on reflection that was evident from those odd red diamond things). It was called the Monsoon restaurant.
Prior to it being a restaurant it was a Gym and a Karate Club. I think the Monsoon closed about 3 years ago. I found an obvious way in but when I returned for the external shot it had been blocked off.

Sally Bear - thanks for the compliment about the photographs. In the last year or so I have made some effort to try and learn photography so it I appreciate your comments. To answer the question on the Greenwood Thread I use a Pentax K-m.

I have got a few trips in my archive I made prior to joining this forum so I will dig them out and post them.
