Ellen (nee Berdsmore) Gerstner on Apr 17, 2018:
I am a pensioner in the US and would like to relocate to Wigan, Nr. Pemberton, Lancaster, England. I would like to know what the cost of living is like, as well as the weather. My Father & his family are from Pemberton. I visited my Great Aunts & Uncles when I was on Holiday there over 50 years ago. I am especially interested in my Great Aunt Belle's & Great Uncle Walter Roby's home!!

A response would be very greatly appreciated! Thank you.
