    Woodcocks Iron Foundry

    I worked at woodcocks as a metal dresser (fettler) in the 60s it was the dirtiest job in the world. I once went on a coach trip to blackpool I had a bath suited and booted and white shirt and tie it was a very hot day and my mate told me to look in a mirror my face was black and beads caused with sweat running down my face, all the muck must have come out of my pores with the heat.
