Stan Car and Hire Factoids

The red rose of Lancashire originates from the 15th century “Wars of the Roses,” when the houses of Lancaster and York adopted the red and white roses as their emblems. Although the Wars of the Roses were between the royal houses (and not between the counties of Lancashire and Yorkshire) both counties have adopted the appropriate roses as their emblems.

Lancashire was the global centre for cotton production, with towns such as Manchester, Bolton, Preston, Blackburn and Burnley economically dependent on the cotton mills. The primary inventions which contributed to the growth of the cotton industry originated in Lancashire…. John Kay’s Flying Shuttle in Bury, James Hargreaves’ Spinning Jenny in Blackburn, Richard Arkwright’s Water Frame in Preston and Samuel Crompton’s Spinning Mule in Bolton.

The Bridgwater Canal was built to take coal for the use of steam engines, from the Duke of Bridgewater’s coal mines at Worsley and then on to the centre of Manchester. The result was a reduction in the cost of coal by 50%, as it was so much easier to transport the coal by water rather than by road, but if “Stan Hire,” had existed in that era, they would have found great value van hire that would have been a great alternative.

Brindley was the first aqueduct which took the canal over a river, the River Irwell…. Why not go and visit Lancashire sites in one of Stan’s great value cars.

Blackpool developed as a major seaside resort for the working classes of Lancashire and Yorkshire. Cheap day trips were very popular and still are, so why not treat the family for a day trip to Blackpool and see the famous Tower and the illuminations.

Stan Car and Van Hire is proud to be from Lancashire and provides the premium Car and Van hire to the local area.
