In development

2nd April 2006

If you have stumbled across this website by accident, or from a link and are wondering what the site is about please read on.


I like local history and have several websites including one about my home town of Wigan in the north-west of England. It's called - over the years my collection of old material has grown - this is the reason that was created.

I will be adding many hundreds (possibly thousands) of old photographs and adverts in the hope of providing a quality, easy to access website for everyone.

If you have visited before the 'go-live' date I hope you will bookmark the site and return again soon. You may be pleasantly surprised!

historyworld will go live very soon. Spread the word, tell your friends.

Thanks for reading.
