Thank you Michael, i dont remember this, it looks to be a very popular lion with the 'well trodden' area around it. I have been looking back on PaD and just to show how active it has become i compared Oct 2006 with Oct 2013. In Oct 2006, there were 69 comments on 26 photos, less than 3 per photo. In Oct 2013 there were 509 comments on 31 photos more than 16 per photo.

Is this one of the lions that was on Lions Bridge in Leigh - just down from the hospital?
