Spring Has Arrived
It is a glorious sunny day today and so I took the opportunity to take photographs of the garden.
Soon we will be able to take photos of the new Laurel and Hardy statue being erected in a revamped County Square of Ulverston. Apart from the statue, engraved into slate flagstones are all the films the couple made. I f you don't know already, Stan Laurel was born in Ulverston. There is a small museum dedicated to their film antics and a pub named after this town's famous son. I doubt Stan ever thought of such fame when he lived in Ulverston. Other famous people lived in Ulverston, including Sir John Barrow, but tourists would have to climb Hoad Hill to have their photo taken beside his monument — it is built in the shape of Eddystone lighthouse, appropriate for a man of Naval history.
