Roughyed Origins: Barton / Eccles (24) RE: Origins: Barton / Eccles 14 Mar 09

It was the vicarage where Huskisson died. he was in teh Duke of Wellingtons carriage and lost his balance climbing into it after a stop. He fell into the path of a train on the other track which ran over his leg. He was taken by train at top speed to Eccles vicarage where he died 9 hours later. I seem to remember a song a bit like the Good Ship Kangaroo about the Ship Canal mentioning a lighthose at Pomona Dock.I'll have a dig about and see what I can find.
