Yarnypotter and the #yarnbombbonus week 2

Leave a comment

It’s week 2 of the #yarnypotter trail and it’s time to add a little something extra…


If you have found this weeks bonus you’ll be at Horseshoe Corner, where Market Street, Penny Street and Cheapside meet.
There are three different stories about how the corner got its horseshoe and its name. The most popular is that John o’ Gaunt’s horse lost a shoe on this spot when he left Lancaster Castle for the final time and the townsmen fixed it on the spot to commemorate the visit. Another story connects it with the Young Pretender or Bonnie Prince Charlie as he was also known. The third tail suggests it may have been connected with the city’s horse fairs.
