Folks,
Found this link on Twitter with some more details of Cabtree and his house in Salford.

Not to sure about the claim that he actually predicted the transit, I thought he only observed it after Horricks predicted it.

Mike,
Well done finding that. Of course Crabtree did not predict the transit - the video is in error. It does not explain how they have proved it was Crabtree's cottage. As I said on Tuesday Allan Chapman has written his house was demolished so how this house has now been associated with Crabtree is a puzzle. It may well be correct of course but an explanation would have been useful.
