    Went to Halewood earlier.

    Shame I wasn't near Speke to go to Hale Village, but I was originally just going to Sainsbury's in Woolton and back. Then while riding out I was curious were the road with the Coach and horses pubs is on leads to so I rode down there and ended up in Halewood Village!

    Want to go to Hale next time.

    A two page article on the Childe of Hale written by someone who grew up around the outskirts around there on here.

    http://www.forteantimes.com/articles/187_childe1.shtml

    If he really was 9ft 3 inches then he's still the current tallest. other than that, bible tales had Goliath at 9ft 9.

    Wonder if the Wrestling story is true. Would rock to wrestle someone that tall and big.
