Golborne Greater Manchester
Golborne is a town within the Metropolitan Borough of Wigan, in Greater Manchester, England. It lies 5.4 miles (8.7 km) south-southeast of Wigan, 6.1 miles (9.8 km) northeast of Warrington and 13.8 miles (22.2 km) to the west of the city of Manchester. It has a population of 23,119, yet the local market has closed, shops lie empty, what a shame when so much trade in local produce could happen. I sincerely wish that community awareness grows to love the gems of houses that they live in, preserve and focus on local. Last week I called by this small town and was immediately drawn to and impressed by the quality of The turn of the 19th century houses, in particular the brickwork. Exquisite detailing of brickwork. Golborne a mining and textile town served by a mainline station clearly thrived at that time with high quality housing.
