Our Photographic Archive is one of the largest in the region and contains over 100,000 images, covering all aspects of life in the Borough.
Wigan & Leigh Archives Online contains only a small portion of our photographic archive. More images are being added all of the time as we work to conserve, digitise and catalogue the photographic collections.
Photographs that are not yet available online are available to view at the Wigan Archives Service at Leigh Town Hall. Please Contact us to make an appointment.
The collections here are organised by township and cover all the towns and villages in the Wigan Borough, as well as some further afield.
