Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

It wasn't a scary place Cathy, but there was a feeling that past generations were keeping an eye on you! The castle was a different matter, my bedroom in the circular keep was right above the room where Edward 2nd was brutally murdered. From being someone who read late into the night I quickly learn...

Re: ODD MATTERS OCTOBER

Newspaper reports from the 1930s suggest that Newsholme Station was the meeting place for the Pendle Forest Hunt, and in the 1880's it was a ven...
