The Fairways offers great days out

A short drive away, Mesnes Park in Wigan is described as “A jewel nestled on the edge of Wigan town centre.” A great family day out, it’s also home to Ernest Gillick's statue of Sir Francis Powell.

Spanning hundreds of acres and including shops and cafeteria, it’s a fabulous place to while away some restful hours with family and friends.

The area is also rich in history with the town of Wigan and its Pier made famous by the author George Orwell who compiled his investigation on working class life for his book, The Road to Wigan Pier. More recently, The Heritage Lottery Fund helped rescue and restore the Trencherfield Mill Steam Engine, which is more that 100 years old and powered the cotton spinning mill, which is located on the Leeds and Liverpool canal.
