By Simon Wilson | 12/06/2019

BANKSIDE GALLERY [MILLIONAIRE’S ROW]

By Simon Wilson | 10/06/2019

We visited Bankside Gallery which is a project to stop antisocial behaviour on this abandoned housing estate; the fairly large housing estate is currently in the process of been knocked down.

An outdoor gallery of street art that’s not only approved by the local authority but also celebrated by residents throughout the city, Bankside Gallery began in February 2018, just after Banksy had painted his awesome piece on Scott Street Bridge. With people from near and far visiting the industrial area to view this cultural asset, a collective of local street artists decided that a lot more could be done.

CRICH QUARRY

By Simon Wilson | 10/06/2019

Quarrying for limestone probably began in Roman times. In 1791 Benjamin Outram and Samuel Beresford bought land for a quarry to supply limestone to their new ironworks at Butterley. This became known as Hilt’s Quarry, and the stone was transported down a steep wagonway, the Butterley Company Gangroad, to the Cromford Canal at Bullbridge. Near there they also built lime kilns for supplying farmers and for the increasing amount of building work. Apart from a period when it was leased to Albert Banks, the quarry and kilns were operated by the Butterley Company until 1933.

What a better place to spend Halloween than with your paranormal buddies in a ghostly and ghoulish Lancashire beauty spot, where a notorious witches coven was rounded up 400 years ago for the Pendle witch trials.

The trials of the Pendle witches in 1612 are among the most famous witch trials in English history, and some of the best recorded of the 17th century.

ELIZABETH AKA LIZZY [THE HAUNTED DOLL]

By Simon Wilson | 26/10/2018

When it comes to haunted objects, especially haunted dolls my thoughts are generally, they are just a word touted around to make the item more desirable for purchase in a circus of a market.

I do believe a majority of objects deemed as haunted are in deed nothing more then just objects. A minority of haunted items could have attachments; and by that, I mean a spirit could have an attachment to an item, in the same was it does to a building or a location.
