I am wondering why they have Obelisks and how many towns/citys have them..maybe they all link up geographically speaking..You can include cenotaphs if you like....
Leigh (pop. 43,000) is a town within the Metropolitan Borough of Wigan, in Greater Manchester, England. It is 7.7 miles (12 km) southeast of Wigan, and 9.5 miles (15.3 km) west of Manchester city centre. Leigh is situated on low lying land to the north west of Chat Moss..Leigh also exploited the underlying coal measures particularly after the town was connected to the canals and railways..Leigh is derived from the Old English leah which meant a place at the wood or woodland clearing, a glade and subsequently a pasture or meadow, it was spelt Legh in 1276..After the Roman departure from Britain, and into the history of Anglo-Saxon England, nothing was written about Leigh.. However evidence for the presence of Saxons in what was a sparsely populated and isolated part of the country is provided by local township place names that incorporate the Old English suffix leah, such as Leigh, Tyldesley, Shakerley and Astley...,_Greater_Manchester only sister, all alone in the wood, and nobody there to save her.. Poor little lamb..You pay too much attention to your granny..She knows a lot but she doesn't know everything...
