    Default Medieval burial ground on Devonshire Rd

    in the dip just under Sunnyside apparently.

    Stories abounded of flooding in this part marshy part of the park where the graves from a medieval plague-pit rose to the surface.

    Spooky. But is it a true story? Certainly the map of 1851 seems to indicate this spur of parkland to be marshland. I wonder if anyone's got any more info?

    The C.Love stuff? Well I did know people who knew her.
    Bill Drummond writes about it in his book, '45' I think it's called.
    Copey writes aboput it in his book, 'Repossessed', and finally she's just released her diary pages in a glossy new book, the ealier sections of which are written in and about her experiences in Liverpool.

    I wouldn't mind knowing more though.
