Maypole Disaster 1908 - Redevelopment - Page 2

Researched by Ian Winstanley - Those Who Died

I said that I would keep you up to date with progress for the redevelopment of the former Maypole Colliery at Abram.
Please find attached a copy of an article that appeared in last week's Wigan Observer and a similar article that appeared in the Wigan Reporter.
I have also attached some graphics of the themes for the open space areas which you may also find of interest. They demonstrate how we will be using the mining theme within the context of the play spaces and public open space areas of the scheme.
I have some great 3D images of the proposed scheme but the file sizes are quite large. Is it worth sending these to you?
