Subject: RE: Folklore: Egg rolling, Rivington Pike, Easter
Lot of memories of Rivington Pike when I worked with children in Preston... used to take them up there to shout abuse at the people who had abused them... they would be given the direction of their homes and would shout abuse at their parents who had often sexually/physically abused them. It was very cathartic for them... often this was expressed on the ay back to the 'establishment' in which they lived..........
I also used to go buying at Antique Fairs there and occasionally had an antique stall myself...
