    On 9 October 1917 east of Langemarck, Belgium,during an attack which was held up by machine-gun fire and causing many casualties,Sergeant Molyneux organised a bombing party to clear the trench in front of an house. Many of the enemy were killed and a machine-gun captured. The sergeant then called for someone to follow him and rushed for the house. By the time the extra men arrived he was in the thick of a hand-to-hand fight which only lasted a short time and the enemy surrendered. In addition to the dead and wounded between 20 or 30 prisoners were taken. He also won the Croix de Guerre (Belgium).

    That's not true, because we recently had Harvey in the US, next one after Ophelia is Philippe. "The current naming scheme began with the 1979 season. It uses alternating women's and men's names, and also includes some Spanish and a few French names. Before then, only women's names were used." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tropical_cyclone_naming

    Hurricanes are named after females, as is Ophelia. However, it may be famous as the name of a a hurricane, but its more famous as Politician Ed Balls sister's name. He said she had a horrendous time at school with name Ophelia Balls.

    A guy I worked with on Wythenshawe hospital told me about his wife's experience with a ghost just after he got married. He said his wife's dad who had been dead for a number of years used to visit her on a regular basis, he said, we would be in bed, he would be reading the paper or a book and she would say, Ron, me dads here, and she would have a full blown conversation with him, he said this went on for a few years, and in all that time he said he never felt anything strange like a temperature change or eerie feelings. One night after a few years of the ghostly visits his wife said , Ron, me dads going now and he cant visit anymore, he said all of a sudden he heard this noise which sounded like a freight train going through the house followed by what he described has pressure which he could feel coming from one end of the house and passing through his body and exiting through the front of the house followed by a total silence, he said that was the only time he sensed anything, and after that the visits stopped.

    I went to a winery/restaurant in the Western Cape, South Africa yesterday - and very enjoyable it was. The very wealthy owner has various rooms dedicated to his many interests, one of which is sports memorabilia. In a glass case, in that room, was the Number 3 shirt worn by Tom van Vollenhoven for the Springbok RU team in 1957 - 60 years ago. I had always thought that South Africans had forgotten Tom and never forgiven him for turning to RL to earn a living because he had a gift. Obviously I am wrong. The memories of the ability of this unique sportsman came flooding back, especially Wembley 1961, so I sat down, relaxed and had another glass of wine.

    Hi Pick, I'm sorry if my reply is a little lengthy (and it is in no way personal I have been meaning to write this for some time) but unfortunately have to disagree with you on your comments about the tunnels leading to St Aidens Church. As much as I would love to think that they did there are a few factors from my own extensive research and also the general consensus on this topic that go against it. The caverns are the remnants of pillar and stall mining and date back around 200 years. The mining is due to the down throw of the quality stone seam which dips considerably south easterly. It was no doubt more expensive to open cast mine the stone like the rest of the site so they opted for the 'pillar and stall' method to extract the decent stone from its source. The stories of Catholic secret masses etc are false. The caverns not exist during this time. Over the years the following theories have been bounded about the caverns. 1. A tunnel to the Stork Hotel. 2. A tunnel to St Helens Town Hall. 3. A tunnel to St Aiden's Church. 4. A tunnel to Billinge Hill Beacon. 5. A tunnel to Windleshaw Abbey. 6. An underground cathedral. 7. An underground lake. 8. An underground waterfall. None of the above include the apparent ghosts or killer dwarfs... (I'll come to that later) Despite these stories, nobody aside from one person has come up with maps (despite many promises to do so - they always seem to be unable to figure how to post them). The member who did produce the maps drew them of the caves we all know well and they show exactly what everybody has already explored. No proof has ever been provided of the waterfall, the extensive tunnels, the church, the altar etc. Given that the thread has now run for 13 years, we've seen much of the same thing come and go which is a little disappointing when all of us are genuinely interested in finding out as much about the caves as we can. Now I certainly do believe that there is much more to them than what we see today and there are certainly are areas which are blocked off either by natural or intentional means. I also think it is entirely possible for the miners to have tunnelled into an existing natural cave system - hence the waterfall, but until somebody produces proof of it I am disinclined to believe it. The main question to ask when thinking about tunnels - for instance an alleged tunnel to St Aidans is the amount of effort it would take for men with their bare hands to hew stone and rock out, tunnel downwards into the valley between them and back up to Crank Hill. It's several miles on foot so will be even further taking into account the geological conditions in the area. Why would they do this? There may well be a tunnel in the church as there are in many places - but I doubt very much it goes to Crank Caverns. The interesting question for me is where did the rumours and myths come from and I think it has something to do with the situation at the time. The Rainford Delph Quarry is situated on the top of a barren hill - even today it's barren and the village of Crank if you look at old maps was only a few houses. Stone from the quarry was used locally for building, but by all accounts it had closed by the 1880s as it is noted on OS maps as 'Rainford Old Delph - disused'. Now imagine our inquisitive Victorian and Edwardian ancestors from Billinge and St Helens who happen to discover this disused quarry. No social media, no documentation or images. A barren, deserted quarry in the middle of nowhere. Stories begin and they grow, word spreads, journalists pick it up and it goes from there. Suddenly it's part of our real history and it was only through looking at the facts that we discovered that they are little more than an old stone mine. It can be disappointing and has been for some people on this thread to think that the stories are not true, but you have to think what you are seeing when you visit this place. It was all done by hand and horse. All of it. Its a feat of labour from men, women and children which remains forgotten and taken over by stories of sinister child eating goblins. They toiled here and created these caves in hard times and in all weathers. Bringing up stone. There would have been injuries here, there would have been deaths from rock falls and accidents. There may still be bodies in there. All records for the quarry were lost - who knows. That for me is the true legacy of Crank Caverns. It's a reminder of a bye gone age, of very hard times where people would go to work and come home from work and not see the light of day and the stone from it still exists in the buildings around the area. What we should be doing is protecting this place as a site of heritage and history. Thanks. James.

    Its a pity the premises can’t be made a touch more impressive, imagine the expressions made by viewers/buyers if Len ‘banana’ Saunders opened the front door dressed as a Butler! added 38 minutes later for a guided tour https://youtu.be/f8wUuNL0QOM

    Haven't posted in this thread for years and I don't think I ever tried to disguise my scepticism over some of the more wild claims. Also, despite all reports of streams, underground lakes, etc., nobody has posted much in the way of photos. That shouldn't be difficult in this day and age. I was last up there a year or so back and I saw nothing to change my opinion, but I am ready to be convinced. The bad knee which prevented me from getting deeper into the caverns on my only attempt at a 'deep' visit in the 1970s has returned with a vengeance so I'm struggling a bit, but I'd be happy to meet up with anyone who knows their way about and have another look. I'm very wary though. There are many loose blocks in the roof of the main entrances and it only takes a decent frost to bring such things down. Talk of recent subsidence only adds to my concern. Let's be careful out there folks! Col

    Dominic and Ellen Hopkins were my Great-Great Grandparents! Their son Dominic Daniel's son, Bernard was my Grandfather. My brother James and I visited Prescott while in England last October! I am so honored to be a part of the Hopkins Family! I am researching our heritage and this site has special meaning to me!
