CRAP !!
Legend has it that, In 1455, the town of Stubbins was the scene of a legendary battle between
the Yorkists and the Lancastrians. At first there were volleys of arrows
between the opposing sides but when these had been exhausted the
Lancastrians, who had a supply of black puddings from Bury, renewed the
battle by throwing these at the Yorkists. In retaliation the Yorkists threw
Yorkshire puddings. There is no report of the outcome. Perhaps both sides
retired.

Disappointingly, this battle never happened. In fact, the legend only
started in 1983. There was a battle of Stubbins Bridge but it was not as
bizarre as this. England loves its history and the War of the Roses is still
strong in the national memory.
