Topic: Re the holes in Blackburn Lancashire
On Phill Williams posts he has a reference to the holes in Blackburn
I actually come from Blackburn and I do have a funny and totally true story about a hole .
Back in the late 60s a friend of mine had a Norton Dominator motorcycle .One day not looking where he was going he rode it into a large hole in the ground .Looking up from the hole at the bewildered council worker who had been leaning on his shovel as the accident happened he said "Give me a hand to get it out mate" .The council worker replied ."You were clever enough to get the bugger in there your self ,lets see if your clever enough to get it out ."
