Wigan is located in Lancashire in the North-West of England. It is one of the four oldest boroughs in the county and is believed to have been founded by the Romans as the garrison town of Coccium.  Steeped in history, it received a charter from Henry III in 1246 and was a key battleground during the Civil War in the 17th Century.  Cromwell’s soldiers are said to have passed through the town twice.  The town stayed loyal to the King and was later rewarded with a ceremonial sword.
