It icludes the Eagle and Child and the The Stork. Stork was built 1752 but is no longer a pub. Its being converted into flats. Mason's Arms in Billinge was built in 1779.

  10. I did not learn kizzy. We were thrown in with a float and expected to know what to do. About 7 years old. The worst thing for me was the temperature drop on my body when I entered the water. Never learned to swim. Decades larer in Benidorm my wife got me to enter a pool and taught me how to float. From there and after a few paddling arm movements and I was slowly propelling myself. Swimming I suppose but I do not like it at age 73.
