what's the 'old boots' never heard of it ? :?

 

Maybe the Lion is a new style of digital tv receiver :lol:

 

Latchford has a local history society so if no-one on here knows they might know or maybe someone just fancied having something a little odd on their roof. 8)

 

You could always knock on their door and ask them :wink:

looking at it it has a sort of asian style to the look similar to ones seen on various temples and such. wonder if it was imported as a gate post and then used to adorn a roof instead.

Which is the group who have written the two books on the local schools? I've got one of the books already as a chap once knocked on the door selling them but I believe they have one for Bolton Primary School too. Wouldn't mind buying a copy if you know where sells them as my dad went there.

Is it a possibility that this particular lion is actually a "Cheshire Cat"?

As a child, I had an elderly relative who lived by the Cheshire Cheese pub.

 

It was a long time back, but I have a very slight recollection about it being a Cheshire Cat. But I could be wrong.

Not sure how good my eyesight will be when I am 120 or if indeed I will remember that I was interested...... but by then we will probably all have implants so emails and other personal internet replies will go directly to our brains receptors :D

 

So send them anyway just incase :lol:

I was quite aware that my post would give my age away Byrdy but it's not something that bothers me as it's only a number after all.... and a low one at that :wink::lol:
