Original message (posted by rayonline5555)
Veteran(the old codger)I backed out of turning up on the so-called heritage trail because I saw the article in thePostnewspaper and I was so annoyed I decided it was best not to confront them just yet as I would most surely have lost my temper. For someone who had 82,000 of our lottery money to play with you would have thought they could have come up a more accurate description of our villages History before now but no ,not them . You know ,what really gets me is thatthey had someone in that crowd who could have,and should have provided them with a lot of answers.Namely Councillor Walter Carney who is a recognised historian with a vast knowledge of the Gerard Family history which is the main source of my own research.Why O Why have they not sought his help.... could it be political?
I took my dog for a walk instead and I met the former chairman of the residents group ,Alan who I have become good friend with,and who left for similar reasons as I did...and he told me that he was talking to a very experienced historian from Wigan who confirmed that all I have been saying is true and that the Stubshaw Cross was erected in the 17th.century and was indeed a signpost and not a cross....I was quite pleased to hear that,and more confirmations will come out now that its all gone public....
