M6 Junction 27 is a motorway junction serving the area north of Wigan.

Initial planned layout for the junction dating from 1950s to 1960

M6 J27 serves as the northern access to Wigan from the M6.

When the M6 was in planning during the mid-1950s the junction was to be a completely different design. No reasons for the change of layout to the roundabout interchange that was built have been found but the unbuilt A511 access road to Wigan may have been a factor. The change in design for the junction occurred somewhere between 1960 and the opening of the M6 in 1963.
