  1. I used to love watching this race every year as a kid and for 4 years from 1987 i walked it.I managed to win a handicap prize in 1991 and was then barred from entering as that was the ruling.To make matters worse the winner the following year did it in a slower time than i managed. It's a real shame it doesn't happen any more.
  2. I was told that the length of the wicker is the distance a long bow archer could reach from the old castle that was situated on the grounds of the Castle market. How true that is i don't know,but it's a good story.
  3. The factory where they get arrested is just under the bridge from Don Valley stadium Attercliffe,can't remember the name of the road.It's on the right in the grounds of Mayflower Technology.
