BECAUSE THEY'RE YOUNG
‘Because they're young’ (Duane Eddy - July ’60)
The Lancashire moors are rugged beautiful places that in the twentieth century were studded with gritty mill towns sending out trailing plumes of smoke six days a week only to be swept away on the prevailing winds.
Summers were short… but when you’re young and in love, what a joy to climb above the grime and look down on the warren of cobbled streets laid out below you.
You can almost hear that heavy twanging guitar that Duane Eddy specialised in.
