First relocates depot in Wigan

With somewhat less fanfare than Stagecoach’s move from Princess Road to Sharston, the weekend just gone has seen the closure of the old Wigan Corporation depot in Melverley Street. First Manchester’s vehicles in the Wigan area now operate out of a modern depot in Bryn – originally built for Shearings Holidays in 1990. Thanks to “Jampot” on Flickr for taking some photos for posterity.

Got any memories of the old depot you’d like to share? Leave us a comment below.
