Hi Dave, I've just put one on Album showing the same slag heap taken from the Aerial flight slag heap about half a mile further on up the road taken in 1947. Yours was taken from near the old signal box position. I remember Bibby's lorries (later Clarington Coach & haulage)taking red shale out of the slag heap during the war. E.T.
Thanks for the info Eric - interesting stuff!
Also - that Orange Tip butterfly I posted on 1st June was taken alongside that fence :)
They use to be called the 'Mini Hills' when i was a kid. We use to ride our bikes and ponies on those hills. Does anyone know how those red rocks got there?
