I am not sure that John Bingham’s story in the Telegraph is correct about the Rock badger. I think the crook is the work of Robert Thompson, “the mouse man” of Kilburn in north Yorkshire. He carves a small mouse on every article and piece of furniture he makes. Happy to be contradicted however.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
