(Norman Jones 1931) building has Tudor and Jacobean features such as the “oriel”windows with vine trails and large mounded mullions and transoms (vertical and horizontal divisions); lion shield-bearers and the shaped, moulded parapet. The extension on the right is a rare example in Wigan of 1960’s/70’s buildings thoroughly modern in style but sympathising with its older neighbour especially in terms of scale, materials and the oriel windows
