    Canal Bank, 1861 Census

    By Mark Haselden,
    Hi Folks, Yes, I'm back with another canal-related street name question.

    By JOHN-F-HAWORTH,
    Oreet folks I was just wondering if anyone can tell me anything about the old disused railway that goes along the back of matalan, past saints, past Jackson Street. The only things I do know (as I walked down it for a bit today) is it obviously links onto the Wigan-Liverpool main line and that it is littered with dirty drug needles all over.
