Photo-a-Day (Thursday, 5th August, 2010)
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?
Good pic. mike. Im, first off the rank. Spooky blue eyes.
good photo,the green eyes follow you.
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.
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
their is a pre christian tradition of skulls in walls ,and house walls .It was strong in derbyshire.
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
I know completely nothing at all on this subject..but common sense tells me i must agree with Mick.!!!
I'm with you,Jean!
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.
DOES THE SURNAMES HUGHES OR TINSLEY
COME TO MIND
were they the same family who owned the cattle market on frog lane ? (at the back of parry's motor parts)
