Pit-Tub


Pit-Tub
Pit-Tub on land at side of High Street, Standish. Plaque reads:

Lacashire Day, November 27th, 2002. This Pit-Tub has been sited here as a lasting reminder that for centuries the Township of Standish was associated with the Coal Mining Industry. Few, if any, signs of that past are visible today. Standish Community Form.
