Up North Trip Full of Laughing Gravy

One time I do the trip up North I should take pics of Jodrell Bank, or Alderly Edge or maybe even Stockport Viaduct, one of the largest brick structures in Europe, which loomed over my childhood and early teens

but I never feel like playing tourist when I'm up there, it's just the crazy details of North West's surreal low simmering hysteria that I notice


with a spotless room full of Laurel and Hardy memorbalia, some of it impressive, some of it scary, promoting a live BeeGees tribute act in the same venue later that evening.

(BeeGee's home town of course was Chorlton-cum-Hardy, Manchester. Stan Laurel was from Ulverston, further up the road.)
