A la mémoire de notre compatriote LUCIEN LEVET. Né à Entremont (I. XI. 1904), propriétaire de cet hôtel. Il entre dans la Résistance française (1940-1944) et offre un abri sûr aux officiers et aux maquisards engagés dans l'Armée secrète. Il assure un précieux service de ravitaillement et de renseignement contre l'ennemi et les traîtres. Après la bataille des Glières (I. IV. 1944), il est arraché aux siens par la Gestapo et traîné aux bagnes de Buchenwald et de Dora où il est mort de misère le 27. XII. 1944. Il a laissé l'exemple du patriotisme simple et pur, capable de donner à la France, avec sa vie, la plus grande preuve d'amour. Passant, souviens toi.

The Bloxwich Showman The legendary showman Pat Collins lived for nearly 30 years at Lime Tree House, now the site of the nearby supermarket, where he also staged his spectacular fun fairs. Collins first showed 'moving pictures' in Bloxwich, in 1900. In 1912, he opened his Electric Palace cinema, which closed in 1921.

It is now 'The Bloxwich Showman', named in honour of Pat Collins, who was also a local councillor, as well as MP and Mayor of Wallsall.

Nico Ditch - History The Nico ditch was constructed some time between the Roman withdrawl from Britain and the Norman Conquest; possibly in the 7th Century as a boundary for the expansionist Anglo-Saxons, or in the late 8th Century or early 9th century as boundary marker between the kingdoms of Mercia and Northumbria. The purpose of the Nico Ditch is unclear; it may have been used as a defensive fortification or as an administrative boundary. Regardless of its earlier use, the ditch has been used as a boundary since at least the Medieval Period One legend has it that the Nico Ditch was completed in a single night by the inhabitants of Manchester as a protection against Viking invaders 869-870. Each man had a set area of the ditch to construct and was required to dig the ditch and build a bank equal to his own height
