Could it have been even further from Liverpool?
I definatley know there was one in Wigan.
I think it was split up someway, I'll look on Wiganworld for more clues.
I know it was at the top and bottom of a shopping arcade in Wigan long since gone. And they were known as 'Top Legs' and 'Bottom Legs' depending if you were at the top or bottom of the arcade.
I also know Wigan had a connection with the Isle of Man, as the wheel that used to power the cotton mill Trencherfield Mill was from there. It has been restored and you can take a trip to see it working.
