Weitere bedeutende Orte im Borough sind Aspull, Astley, Billinge, Bryn, Golborne, Ince-in-Makerfield, Hindley, Leigh, Orrell, Shevington, Tyldesley und Whelley.

Diese Gebietskörperschaften gehörten zuvor zur Grafschaft Lancashire. 1986 wurde Wigan faktisch eine Unitary Authority, als die Zentralregierung die übergeordnete Verwaltung von Greater Manchester auflöste. Wigan blieb für zeremonielle Zwecke Teil von Greater Manchester, wie auch für einzelne übergeordnete Aufgaben wie Polizei, Feuerwehr und öffentlicher Verkehr. (de)
