GUEST,Steve Help: West End of Darby (13) RE: Help: West End of Darby 26 Oct 05


The pidgeon is in the Derby museum. I saw it there a few years ago along with its history. My partner loves singing the song and sang it to a group of elderly pidgeon fanciers from the Derby area some years ago. It was a particular favourite at a session in Wardlow Myres. Thelandlord would suddenly appear at the doorway making pidgeon noises and even appeared, one night, with a specially prepared dead pidgeon, suspended from a long stick by a piece of string. My partnet, trooper that she is, managed to complete the song before disolving into laughter!
