Interestingly, I was in the process of collecting a fork lift truck, which had been hired out to what, allegedly, turned out to be a gang of bogus contractors, who had used the machine to steal the stone copings from the building.
Eddie that's May Mill not Empress mill.
Eddie's PUT that it's May Mill, Garry.
Take a closer look at the title above the photo Garry.
Silly me, sorry.
No worries Garry, welcome to the club.
In the 1800s it was called Wilde's Mill and there was a row of cottages off Foundry Lane called Wilde's Cottages which were rented to the workers and my ancestors from Ireland lived there.
Maria M What is the name of your relatives?
Eddie, were you working for T.S.???
Yes I was A.B., did you know the man? He was a real gent.
I knew of him, through business, and my friends John Bond and Ken Fisher who dealt with him, both of whom I am in regular contact toda
I worked here in the late 60s / early 70s, with some good people.
