Wigan and Leigh Archives Online

Welcome to Wigan & Leigh Archives Online

our new photographic and collections website

You will find thousands of new resources, improved viewing and searching, and over time we'll be adding new collections from the Archives and Museums.

A small minority of images on our site contain offensive content. Archives: Wigan & Leigh have provided captions to contextualise these images. If you discover any content you deem offensive, please get in touch.

We hope you enjoy our new website and would be pleased to hear from you with any ideas and suggestions or donations of new archives or photographs for us to add to the site.
