  • The link between the cross and the statue is that the statue was paid for by Mr Bryant of Bryant&May.
    There are a few versions of the story but I’ll choose the one I like......Bryant paid for the statue by stopping money from his sweated, exploited and poisoned workers wages.
    At the unavailing some of the women workers cut their hands and wiped blood on the statue saying that the statue was paid for with their blood. Since then the statue has had red hands every time the authorities clean it somebody repaints them. The last time it happened was when the area was sanitised before the 2012 Olympics.

  • Finally got round to having a look—another clue would be appreciated

  • Hola,

    Was trying to be polite and inoffensive incase you didn't know about the cross. But you do.

  • Interesting wheels...what are they? Are they painted or coated or something?

  • What links chicken and a soap opera?

  • Amazing story! Thanks for the detail.

  • What links chicken and a soap opera?

    I reckon Dean Gaffney is probably in the queue when there’s a big drop at Supreme.

  • I think Korma Chameleon might have been number one when Angie slapped Den with her decree nisi

  • I wasn't following the thread then...can I have a link please?

  • I knew that book would be useful! Technically, I believe it is outside the pale, where is my bike

  • Old: the end of the Tottenham Outrage / Walthamstow Tram Chase, Hale End Rd / Oak Hill.

    Excerpt from The Tottenham Outrage and Walthamstow Tram Chase ISBN 978-1-909976-40-5:

    […] £5 was found on Lepidus’ body, but that no money at all had been found on Hedfeld’s […] £75 was still missing.
    Many years later, local gossip was that the Rolstone family was living well beyond its means. The suspicion was that they found the money up the chimney and said nothing. The family ignored the gossip and kept tight-lipped. Many more years passed before Charles Rolstone junior, the young boy who had been trapped in Oak Cottage by Lepidus at the end of the chase, gave an interview to local historian, Ray Dudley of Whipps Cross Radio and the Tape Recorders Guild and admitted that Oak Cottage partially collapsed during a storm several years after the incident and that, while clearing the rubble afterwards, a sum of money was found in what was left of the fireplace in the front parlour. He did not disclose exactly when this happened or precisely how much money. But perhaps this was why Lepidus had climbed up the chimney just before he went upstairs and put his pistol to his head and killed himself?

  • Well done. I spy another plaque as a nice link.

    The Tottenham Outrage chase ended when the second of the two robbers, Lepidus, was cornered in a cottage that stood approximately there, although it's long gone. Some sources say it was where the adjacent pub now is. Either way, Lepidus fatally shot himself in an upstairs bedroom as the police burst in.­Outrage

    Thanks again to @brokenbetty for starting this theme.

  • Great clue.
    Infinitesimally small chance I can cycle there before others who are less
