    Can't speak for the rest of the country but the local one usually refers to the symbol of the Earls of Derby, or the Stanleys as they were then.The legend has it, that one Lord Stanley, having no legitimate son with his wife but an illegitimate one with a village girl, decided to take advantage both of his wife's naiveness and the reputation for child stealing which the eagle (sea eagle?) resident in these parts then, enjoyed. He placed his illegitimate off-spring on the ground underneath the nest of an eagle and then invited his wife to stroll in that direction. On finding the child, a thieving eagle was blamed and the child was adopted! Another version of the legend says that the son never inherited as the father had a fit of guilt and left everything to his (legitimate) daughter who adopted the symbol to crow over her half-brother. Various versions exist but that's roughly it.

    In Mawdesley out in Lancs, there's an eagle and child pub also named for the Stanleys/Derbys who owned nearby Lathom. The locals call it the bird and the *******!


    Whoops! I've been censored! The last word is a common word for an illegitimate child beginning with b.

    Hi G.D,
    just wondered if you had any info' on Key's court's previous incarnations, and also,is that it's new name, or a revived old one? I know it was H.M.V.,Woolworth's,previously, but looking at the frontage now, makes me think it was some sort of gallery/arcade, at one time?

    Yes, that's right Lindylou. I heard it was to be called Church Yard.

    it did have a different name when the project started, I'm trying to find the page online that gave the original names.
    as for the keys; at the very top of the building, way above the clock is this...

    As for the Keys I have a theory.

    The site was that of St. Peters Church (the Liverpool pro-cathedral) and St Peter in traditional Christian symbolgy is indicated by a set of 'crossed keys'. The reason for the Keys is that St Peter traditionaly guards the gates into Heaven and so they keys to the gates became his symbol.

    I'm guessing that Keys Court is so named as a reminder of St Peters Church and the keys that St Peter held.

    St Peter was also the first pope and as such the emblem of the papacy includes the crossed keys;

    ANNAJANE, those photos were really good, thank you for sharing them with us.

    I happened to be in the Women's Hospital on Saturday visiting and couldn't wait to ask a friend to take a photo of the statue outside. I think it is very moving as a piece of art especially where it is, gives it a double award from me. See what others make of it.

    Did you know it was reported on local radio over the holiday period that this was smashed up and dismantled by the pondlife trying to weigh it in as scrap (apparently) but they gave up on trying to move it as it was too heavy. A local campaigner had applied for railings around the park as youths were using it for drinking and anti social behaviour.

    Agreed, thanks, Partsky. Ged, I am sorry to hear about the vandalism and anti-social behavior around the monument. Ugh.
