About Wigan

Located 10 miles north of Warrington, Wigan had a total population of 81,203 according to the 2001 census.
Historically in the county of Lancashire, Wigan during classical antiquity was in the territory of the Brigantes, an ancient Celtic tribe that ruled much of northern England.
Wigan experienced dramatic economic expansion and a population boom during the industrial revolution. Wigna became known as a mill town and a coal mining district, even though porcelain manufacture and clock making had been major industries in the town.
Since 1992, Wigan has been home to the annual World Pie Eating Championship. Wiganers are sometimes referred to as 'pie-eaters'. The name is said to date from the 1926 General Strike, when Wigan miners were starved back to work before their counterparts in surrounding towns, and so were forced to metaphorically eat "humble pie"
