I live in Wigan. What words spring to mind? Pie? Industry? Uncle Joe’s Mint Balls? Rugby?
It doesn’t have the best press in the world, so there’s a good chance that you are totally unaware of some of my favourite spots across Wigan and Leigh. If you love the outdoors and the opportunity to glimpse a fox, some swans or a toddler on the loose followed closely by a parent absolutely terrified then maybe the local green spaces are for you!
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so let the pictures speak for themselves:
Amberswood. (Between Platt Bridge, Ince and Hindley)
Pennington Flash. (Pennington, Leigh)
Rivington Pike. (nr. Blackrod and Horwich)
Wigan: ain’t it beautiful?
