Where on Castle Hill was the factory, Harold?

Are we talking Castle Hill Mill, Harold?

It was located just past the cemetery on the opposite side of the road. The area where Castle Hill Park is now.

I think the girl third from left on the back row is Margaret Dyson, and the girl second from right on the back row is Valerie Speakman.
