Wigan Pier

  • About
    "So small, yet so famous. It's actually a metal rail at the end of the tramway at Wigan's canal wharf, designed to automatically tip up coal trucks to empty their cargo into the boats moored at the canalside. Its fame is thought to have originated as a music hall joke comparing it on favourable terms with the rather longer piers at Blackpool and Southport. And then, of course, George Orwell carried it on with his book 'The Road To Wigan Pier'."
