Wigan Pier is a genuine place – a busy industrial hub on the old canal network of Britain – although it became a bit of a joke as people thought they were going to see a seaside pier like Brighton has. But this is the centre of a fine collection of industrial heritage including Trencherfield Mill. There’s a lot more interesting stuff going on in Wigan than mocking southerners would believe.
