Nice one. Is that Woodshaw Rook (Wooochie) in the background ??
Lived on the other side of that slag heap.

In one word.....excellent!


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 4th February 2012 at 10:21
Nice shot John. I'm a big fan of XP2 - I use it in my Nikon FM2n.


Comment by Fred Mason on 4th February 2012 at 10:43
Ah, the old Ilford XP2. Remember it well. I didn't realise anyone still used film in this digital age.

Lovely photo, John. Do you develop your own work?

Nice to see a black and white photo again,


Comment by Kenny K on 11th February 2012 at 13:30
Is that lock sealed up? Looks like there's planks fastening it shut.


Comment by Carole Jones on 3rd March 2013 at 21:25
I am doing some research into the area from a local history perspective. It is difficult to establish what is factual because there appear to be a lot of stories passed on by word of mouth. Photographs help.I was trying to find out where Woodshaw dirt heap was in connection with research into Kirkless works site, this photograph has made things a lot clearer.
