The cats were produced in 1989 by Donna Hartley Designs of Cloughfold for Samuel Webster & Wilson's Brewery to celebrate 150 years of brewing and placed on the roofs of their pubs including the Rostrons, Edenfield; The Queen, Bacup; Farhome Tavern, Stacksteads; The Railway, Waterfoot; and the former Corner Pin, Stubbins.

Re: Victoria Arcade Waterfoot

My boyfriend use to live in the railway and before it was a pub it was a farm. at the time it was a farm the woman who lived in it hung herself and was called jane. shes been seen numerous amounts of time by my boyfriend, his family and other people aswell. she has also been known to hide objects. no noises or voices have been heard but she would like to mess with things alot of the time.
