Described in 1698 as a pretty market town built of stone and brick, Wigan was radically transformed by the first and second industrial revolutions and, for a century or more, cotton was king.

While it is well-known for its pies, its mint balls, its cup-winning rugby and soccer teams, its icons of music, stage and screen, and its thick jam butties, Wigan is even more famous for its semi-mythical pier. But after 2,000 years of constant change, there is much more of interest and even of timeless, sylvan beauty in this old town and its surrounding villages.
