GUEST,Banjoman Folklore: Treacle mines (125* d) RE: Folklore: Treacle mines 28 Mar 03


The Treacle Mines are actually in Tadley Hants. where they still hold a regular Treacle Market.
Did you also know about the Kettle Factory in Liverpool where they knitted kettles from steel wool?
There was also the money tree which grew at the bottom of my mum's garden, but which alas died when she did. The world abounds with these relics of ancient times, including the Park Keeper who's main task was to wheel the sun into the Hot Houses every morning, or the man who wiped the sweat off the Bobby Horses at New Brighton Fair.
Keep 'em coming
