History was made as casting for 'The Miner's Gate' - the people's choice for the Mowpin Lodge Gates at Haigh Hall - began.

The borough's rich mining history is the focus of the design, showing a mining shovel and pick axe. And now it's being made into reality.

The work is being carried out at Wigan foundry J T & E Castings in Leyland Mill Lane.
