Stan Laurel was born in Ulverston, Cumbria on 16th June 1890 at his grand parents’ house at 3 Argyle Street.

The property is still there to this day.

This bronze statue of Stan and Ollie takes pride of place outside the Coronation Hall in the town.

Now that the dark nights are here, the statue looks wonderful illuminated by the gas lamp.

Close by in Brogden Street is the Laurel and Hardy Museum.

Here you can browse an eccentric showcase of hat, beer bottles, props, photos and press cuttings of the pair.

There is also a constant screening of Laurel and Hardy films in the 1920s-style cinema.
