Our great England looks set for deeper and deeper reduced input that has the cheek to ask us to start helping with local services etc. Anything to move Featherstone forward apart from housing is well out of the window it seems unless we do it ourselves.
Regardless of the political fight in Featherstone, the last 8 years have been a pleasure at times to be able to absorb the wealth of historical knowledge of our small but great town, because of what the fight brings to light.
Anyone fancy a winter research project?
There have been many people over the last 10s of years and recently on forums such as this that have offered up clues to a magical part of our local history called the “four stones” or as we know the start of the word “Featherstone”.
Perhaps the minds and people with shovels that exist and hold the passion could pull together and find these stones. For to long there has been talk. If the stones could be found they would make a great tourist attraction incorporated in the new Lidle art work? If the stones could be found would it not be a great tourist attraction if they were placed as originally laid at the four corners of Featherstone? If they cannot be found would it not be a great asset to the town to re-create them.
The last known whereabouts of the stones is on the Wakefield road allotments. Where to begin?
Perhaps an agreed description of what to look for is a starting point?
