Mummy at the Hall


New Member
I was talking to my aunt at the weekend about Aston Hall and she remembered visiting there as a child (she is now 88 years old) and seeing a mummy partially unwrapped on display. It terrified her as a young girl!

Does any one have any details or any memories about this at all?

Thanks :)

Mummy at the Hall: My mother grew up in Upper Thomas Street and always told me that the mummy was known as 'Shaggy'. Mom was born in 1912 and if they were going out they were told not to be late back or 'Shaggy'll get yer!'
