A NATIONALLY acclaimed Wigan author has expressed her admiration for the town’s beautiful scenery.
Jennifer Taylor, who has recently released her 75th novel, The Motherhood Mix-Up, frequently visits her favourite place, Orrell Water Park, which is just minutes away from her home.
The wetland holds a lot of memories for the grandma of two, who despite a five year battle with a rare type of cancer, still walks through there daily.
She said: “I walk my dog there early each morning and used to spend a lot of time visiting frequently with my late husband too. It doesn’t matter what the weather is like when I go because it’s a lovely place to visit, rain or shine.
“Mind you, I think that we are so lucky, living here in the borough. There are so many beautiful and historical places to visit around Wigan.”
