Curious Tales of Workington is a recollection of events, facts and folklore that have helped to create the story of the town. These tales have been recalled from the Curwen histories, old newspapers and general recorded events. Workington's unique history, dating back to before the Roman era, has seen many odd events and this small volume brings together some of the more curious and 'weird' that have occurred in the past few centuries. The 'Curious Affair of Mary, Queen of Scots', 'The Uppies and Downies Game', 'The Story of Friar's Well' and 'Some Curious Tales and the Inexplicit' are but a few of the entertaining tales to be found here.
