Hi, Pied Piper:

My husband's pushing for a side trip to Jodrel Banks Observatory, so we may get to Manchester yet. Thanks for all the info.

True, but it's such a dramatically pretty spot, I couldn't miss it! And the local legend regarding its founding is pretty terrific. And with one of the later ballads telling the story of Robin trying his hand at fishing out of Scarborough, it's not too far a stretch to see how a nearby fishing village might acquire his name.

Cheers, Hester
