    The view of a Night Watchman, is the culmination of a two-year project undertaken by artist Kevin Casey. Part documentary photography, part archival re-presentation and part making ends meet, as Casey’s ‘night job’ as an on-site security guard at the former Pilkington Glass Headquarters became his ‘day job’ as an artist, the work presented tells the story of an uncertain future, tense present and captivating past. The collection, including C-Type prints, archive film, projections and uncovered artefacts also testifies to the situation that Casey found himself in – part voyeur and part guardian – whilst drawing the viewers’ attention to the vicissitudes of contemporary capitalism and its contested relationship to our recent industrial and manufacturing past. Further to the works on display at Alexandra Park, visitors to the exhibition will have the opportunity to visit selected spaces within the former Pilkington Glass complex, designed by the mid-20th Century Architect, Edwin Maxwell Fry, of Fry and Drew. A short tour will include a visit to the modernist Tower whose Armourclad panels have dominated the skyline of St. Helen’s since the complexes construction in the late 1950s. Avinash Chandra’s back-lit, abstract relief panel of stained, fused glass and Jon Humphrey Spender’s artwork can also be viewed, as well as the panelled lift lobby, former canteen and elements of the landscaped grounds, including the north lake and concrete bridge. As much of the site is not normally publicly accessible, the exhibition and short tour provides a rare opportunity to view a Modernist landmark and exhibited materials that possess a deep local and global significance.

I couldn't really talk to Kevin much as a guy was chatting to him for nearly the full hour plus a few other people.Kevin still works there which i said it must be eerie but with an High-Vis and torch it goes along way patrolling he said. I thought we was going to the top of the tower but he said we can't due to health and safety. Anyway it was worth going but i hope @RATTY can take more in than i could. Thanks Kevin. Ps,i told him about this site so i hope he joins and gives more info.

    I hope you got that swimming dog to sign a release before sticking its picture on here, otherwise, you could find yourself in serious trouble.It will only be a matter of time before one of "those" people spots it, and as the PPI thing is coming to an end they're bound to be looking for a new scam, I can just see it now. There'll be adverts appearing in veterinary surgeries and on tv all over the country, "hey Fido, does your owner leave you alone all day, have they banned you from sitting on the couch? you could be entitled to compensation. "hey pussycat, does your owner lock the catflap at night to keep you in, do they make you wear a bell to prevent you catching birds? you too could be entitled to compensation. Pets everywhere, were you quietly minding your own business when some bloke took your picture without permission? Call us now, we're so desperate to make money, we'll sue anyone for the most ridiculous thing, call us NOW!

    My grandparents had an Anderson shelter, they lived in Portico estate, he dug it up after the war and made it into a shed and the entrance into a coal storage. Not St Helens now but there where a load of shelters on my school field, Central Modern in Portico Lane. You can see them faintly here on the bottom left corner

    Although I came from St. Helens I was from Parr and not from the Hard Lane area. I have however just enjoyed an hour and a half reading through all the memories you all have of your happy childhoods on the estate, someone should write it all down in a book so the memories do not get lost with the passage of time.

    i have been going to crank caverns since I was a baby with my grandad. He is a 'proper billinger' we would go the caverns and then mooch over to the 'promised land' for a picnic. There are five entrances to the caves and they lead into a sort of communal area where you can walk straight though. However from this communal area, they start to branch off into separate ways, I think there are 3 separate tunnels, not sure. My grandad always took me to the 'secret' entrances as he called them. One was nicknamed the mousehole and the other was called 'kings cave'. These two entrances were situated well away from the 'communal ones' and they were very well hidden, especially kings cave. I believe these caves were connected to the others but the led all the way to st Aidan's church, the famous snake symbol tomb being the exit point! This ran under the stork pub, George &a dragon pub and also St Mary's church. Access point at st Mary's is around the white statue at the back of the church. Back at the caverns, the kings cave also led the opposite direction to the St. Helens town hall and finished at the Masonic hall. Exit point again being snake related. A huge wooden snake called K.E.S in which children could crawl through its mouth and slide down its tail.. a picture of kes
