Situated on the banks of the Leeds-Liverpool Canal, Wigan Pier is one of the northwest’s favourite visitor attractions.
No visit to Wigan Pier would be complete without seeing the Trencherfield Mill Engine in action. Our Engine is the world’s largest original working mill steam engine and is located in its original setting, which has recently been restored to its former glory. The Engine is accompanied by an audio-visual show telling the story of the Engine’s life at Trencherfield Mill from 1907 to the present day.
Additional on-site attractions include boat trips along the Leeds-Liverpool Canal, walks in the grounds and a regular programme of events.
