Hesketh Arms

Picture source: Peter Ashworth


The Hesketh Arms was situated at 109 Shevington Moor.
This pub was bought by Wainhomes a few years after it closed, with a view to demolishing it and building new homes on the site. The local residents resisted this by involving a local MP and pressuring Wigan Council to preserve the building. English Heritage then listed the pub Grade II, based on its age (circa 1650) and historic significance. It was sold to a private owner in 2011 who has renovated the the badly vandalised building into a residence.
