  1. Fantastic photos, Robbob.
  2. R.I.P. Chris, a Gentleman to the end.
  3. Hi elliem21, If you put Copper House Row into the search box you will find quite an interesting piece about your topic. Also a map showing the location. Good Luck.
  4. R.I.P little girl, may god comfort you.
  5. What's all this got to do with Sherdley Park
  6. Just been for a walk around Sherdley Park, all the animals and birds have gone from the pets corner. I wonder what next?
  7. Definitely not safe! I hope someone who can do something about it has seen your photographs.
  8. hi, Brian, I think the name comes from the place. That little area of Nutgrove is referred to on the old maps as Brown Hedge. I think the name derives from a hedge of trees that the leaves were brown in winter (deciduous?).
  9. Worked (?) at Lathom for a few years, enjoyed walking round the fields and visiting the local pubs. Still enjoy walking down the canal bank. Great pictures Robbob, well done.
  10. Hi Strollby, I used to do my F.T.'s long hand but finished up with reams of paper which the wife threatened to set fire to if I didn't get rid of it. Now I use an external disc and find it a lot easier and far less of a verbal conflict.
  11. Great photo's Robbob -- keep them coming.
  12. Hi Kizzy, I think I remember you, I worked in the drawing office and worked on the installation of most of the equipment at Ravenhead.
  13. Hi Alan, I think it closed in the 1970's, most of the equipment was shipped out to China and set up there. An old pal (along with others) went out there and helped set the machinery up.
  14. Ah! Happy Valley, spent many a happy hour there with my jam butties and bottle of water. Sliding down the slope and slipping down the water. On Sunday afternoons it was packed with people.
  15. Hi Alan, You are referring to Pilkington Ravenhead Works. They produced over the years a variety of products from glass blocks to overhead electrical insulators and in later years television tubes and screens. I worked there from 1961 to the closure, when Fibreglass took over.
