Cromwell or the Undertaker?


 

A eerie image of Oliver Cromwell in front of the Sturgeon Moon in Saint Ives, last night,

I can’t help thinking that it’s really The Undertaker getting ready for his next “Hell in a Cell” contest.

  1. It seems that Oliver Cromwell is being rehabilitated in Huntingdon seeing at the new street furniture. He was once considered a pariah by the town, so St Ives has his statue. Huntingdon didn’t want it when it was offered to them.

    • So I believe, it’s interesting that the St Ives Facebook page frequently has pictures of Ollie. I bought “Olive Cromwell and the rule of the Puritans in England” a few years ago from an antiques and collectors fair, I’ll have to start reading it one day.

      • Cromwell, our chief of men, by Antonia Fraser is a good read.
