The other day my good lady wife started to tell me a story about how she went to see a huge dead whale which was being displayed in Ormskirk. At first, she thought it must have been in the 1960s but it seems it was actually in the 1970s. A little Googling later she found this on the BBC website from 2016:-
Her search continued and bingo she found the very evidence she was looking for on the Ormskirk Bygone Times Facebook page, with photos too.
Hard to imagine such a touring display happening these days.
