    Google Earth, search for 'SPRINGPOOL, WIGAN', then Winstanley Hall is slightly NW of this road, across a field. Easy to see courtyard area from GE.

    I wonder what the 'planning disputes' are?

    The original windows look very nice but I bet they're mostly trashed now and whoever (if anyone) ends up developing it will replace them with lovely white UPVC ones.

    I recall the planning stemming around the affordability issue. I.e. they could turn that place into a small number of very expensive apartments and add some big posh dwellings to the extensive site.

    But Wigan Councils UDP for the area is affordability rather than exclusivity!
