I've been trying to find the spot where this is, I believe there's a plaque. Anyone know how to get to it?
Hi Barbara, there is a plaque of which I took a photo of a couple of years ago, if you look at
and scroll to the bottom you will see it.
To get there, go through Platt Bridge heading towards Abram, when you get to the main junction, turn left down Bickershaw Lane. Go about 400yds and you will see a little lane on your left (signposted caravan park) - its a gypsy site, be careful!
You will really struggle trying to find it as its in undergrowth off the path. I went into the caravan park and a lady by the name of Margaret called a couple of young lads over to take me to the spot.
Can you please tell me were abouts the memorial stone is for ludovic berry,i know its somewere between abram and platt bridge but not sure were.thank you
There were 5 locos, based at Low Hall, as well as Dolly there was Daisy, the others were called Number ?, I don't remember which numbers.I used to get to ride on them as a kid, as my granddad Ted Kyn aston was in charge of them. He is the man shown, and he showed me over 50 years ago several shots of the scene with him on them. He lived in 22 Church Road, opposite St Nats Church, visible in the background.He died 1993, aged 93. His brother John also worked with the locos, living in 479 Liverpool Road.
Could just see the shaft from my bedroom window when i was a kid,now its hidden by trees; We used to play there me n r kid. There;s a steel pipe going over the brook to the left of the pic abt 20 inch dia we used to run across it ignoring the 15 ft drop into the water! Must have a walk over the next time i go down to my mums. Ive never seen the mem plaque.
