Arrow ARCHIVE: Wigan Swimming Baths Crane - 14/03/10 - 15-03-2010, 22:47

Recently the old Wigan International Swimming Pool was demolished, and there were a few reports on it not too long ago. Now work has started constructing a new "187m ‘Joint Service Centre’" which will incorporate a new pool and leisure facilities.

Work has only just started, I noticed the crane on Thursday so it's not been up long. It's only relatively small at the moment, I'm hoping it will get taller, but it's a nice one to climb.

Climbed with Over.



Wigan North Western train station


Scholes flats




The Grand Arcade shopping centre car park






The library and town hall building






oo-er








I need to return in the day at some point and get some decent pictures of the crane, didn't hang around too long on this occasion


Thanks for looking
