"Haigh Fest "[edit]

It has been suggested that mention of this annual music rock festival, organised by Wigan Council, and attended by about 8,000 people, is "trivia" and does not belong in this article, which is about the House. What are people's views? Thanks. Martinevans123 (talk) 10:04, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

Archive records[edit]

Editors may find it useful to know that the WIGAN ARCHIVES SERVICE holds a very extensive collection of "RECORDS OF THE HAIGH ESTATE AND THE EARLS OF CRAWFORD" and which is listed here (runs to 63 pages). Martinevans123 (talk) 11:21, 5 July 2011 (UTC)

Plantation Gates image[edit]

I was considering adding this image: File:The Plantation Gates - geograph.org.uk - 856877.jpg, but do other editors think it does not belong as "it's not even about the hall"? Thanks. Martinevans123 (talk) 10:35, 24 July 2011 (UTC)

It's got a better conection than the removed image, but that wouldn't be difficult.--J3Mrs (talk) 10:52, 24 July 2011 (UTC)
Hahaha, that almost looks like agreement, lurking somehere behind the sardonic dig. But one can never be sure. The Planatation Gates were, for many years, as near as most local people ever got to the Hall and they are still an impressive local landmark. Perhaps the image would be better in the Haigh article itself? Except that they are in Wigan? Martinevans123 (talk) 11:27, 24 July 2011 (UTC)
