Notes on the Geography of The United Kingdom: Wigan: Photo 13

world pictures The United Kingdom: Wigan

And here is the presumed location of Wigan Pier. In Chapter 4, Orwell writes of himself: "Mr Orwell was 'set down' in Wigan for quite a while and it did not inspire him with any wish to vilify humanity. He liked Wigan very much--the people, not the scenery. Indeed, he has only one fault to find with it, and that is in respect of the celebrated Wigan Pier, which he had set his heart on seeing. Alas! Wigan Pier had been demolished, and even the spot where it used to stand is no longer certain." Tourists settle now not for the pier but for a pub named Orwell.
