Friday on YNT is Fact Friday where as well as the news I regail you with a fascinating fact that you never knew before; so without further waffle here is this week's fact....
The Cornish town of Lostwithiel was so named due to the fact the town would be moved around the countryside to fool unwelcome travellers. This was achieved using a cunning and intricate system of brass pulleys and valves set up in Victorian times and operated by the mayor of Lostwithiel while sitting in a seat in the towns control room situated in the guildhall that looked similar to the time machine in HG Wells' book of the same name. The practice continued until the 1950s when the town received a visit from a very annoyed official from the Ordnance Survey.
