Thread Name: Lyr Add: The Battle of Sowerby Bridge
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The Battle of Sowerby Bridge
Just to note that it has been suggested that “King’s Cross” should be King Cross and “Cavering Slacks” should be Catherine Slack. Both these places and all the other places mentioned in the song - with the exception of Shipley Glen- are places within the vicinity of Sowerby Bridge. It seems therefore that Shipley Glen ought to be Shibden Glen - but did it ever have an aerial flight as did Shipley Glen? Or was that poetic licence?
