Wenlock and Mandeville represent two steel drops of the steel industry of Bolton.
“Stoke Mandeville” is a location in Buckinghamshire, where since 1948 a forerunner of Paralympic Games has been taken place.
The name “Wenlock” derives from the location “Much Wenlock”, where from 1850 a forerunner of the modern Olympic Games has taken place.
The orange light on the head of the mascots stands for the taxi labels on the roof of the english cabs.
