Thread Name: Obit: death of UK child killer Ian Brady
Subject: RE: Obit: death of UK child killer Ian Brady
Harry Allen, the hangman who hanged James Hanratty, among many others, was the landlord of the Junction Inn at Besses. My mum never fails to remind me every time I take her to Marks and Sparks Simply Food in Prestwich. The pub isn't there any more, and there's a big Tesco near there now on the former site of Prestwich lunatic asylum. People round there still say "Eee, yer bloody drivin' me mad. I'll bloody end up in Prestwich at this rate..."
