Fairfield locks footbridge
Even the litter looks good in the snow
Now in Audenshaw
Snow on a narrowboat

Statue of Jack Judge who wrote the song 'It's a long way to Tipperary".
He was performing in Stalybridge and the story goes that someone challenged him with a bet of five shillings
that he could not write a new song that day and then perform it on stage during that evening's performance.
He wrote the song and won the bet, performing it for the first time on the stage of The Grand Theatre during
the evening's performance on 31 January 1912. It became one of the most famous songs of the first world war.
