This brings back great memories. What a wonderful house inside, back in the sixties. That's when the Tricket family lived there. The 2 Tricket brothers were school friends of my brother Roy.

Fascinating! What's the story?


Comment by A Parr Australia on 5th August 2010 at 03:27
Good pic. mike. Im, first off the rank. Spooky blue eyes.


Comment by brian on 5th August 2010 at 11:40
good photo,the green eyes follow you.


Comment by Derek Platt on 5th August 2010 at 18:29
Actually Ellen there is a story because the skull I saw was a real one and it was inside the house in a box. Mind you I never found out the story of the skull.


Comment by Mick on 5th August 2010 at 19:39
I also saw the skull in the 60s Derek and at that time they believed it was the skull of a priest who had died while hiding up the chimney.

But last year I was talking to the son of the same family who thought the priest story was true but they had the skull examined by a orthopaedic surgeon and he said the skull was a female.

So that put a end to the priest story.

ledgend has it that somone once threw the scull in the river douglas. The scull reappeared and the person died shortley after.well thats that what i heard any way


Comment by den on 6th August 2010 at 01:50
their is a pre christian tradition of skulls in walls ,and house walls .It was strong in derbyshire.


Comment by Mick on 6th August 2010 at 13:27
That skull was made by putting some left over cement that some builder had left over into a rubber mask.

Its got nothing to do with traditions


Comment by jean on 6th August 2010 at 15:58
I know completely nothing at all on this subject..but common sense tells me i must agree with Mick.!!!


Comment by Ellen on 7th August 2010 at 01:16
I'm with you,Jean!


Comment by Cecilia on 14th August 2010 at 18:28
Dont spoil the mystery, Mick Jean and Ellen, we all can see what it is made from. but there is a tale to be told about it as you can see above.
