For video`s of Appley Bridge, see :-
Some useless info, Mick!! :-
Linoleum was invented in Staines, Surrey, in 1855 by an Englishman, Frederick Walton, who was baptised near Halifax in 1834.
Appley Bridgers used to say that the ghost of a woman who was killed working at the Linoleum factory walked along the canal bank on misty nights, her nick name was Lino Lil.
Lizzie, did you go to Fairy Glen? - re my comments yesterday.
Ernest theres a lot more proper Appley Bridge videos here,,,,
Not that I can remember Ernest but I do believe in faries because when you have grandchildren, I have two, you go back into your childhood a little bit..... I have a little fairy plaque near the front door on the wall, just to let them know they are welcome......
My granddaughter always says that there are faries in the garden, which I think is lovely....cheers!!
I've obviously been mistaken Mick, but I've always thought that factory had been demolished years ago.
Lizzie I also believe in fairies as most of the time I'm away with them. LOL.
Cyril the front part as been knocked down after there had been one of the many fires.
The bits you can see are all the new parts of the factory.
Cyril, You are correct there was a Lino factory on the south side of the canal at the end of Canal Bank it was demolished years ago. I know the factory in the photo used to manufacture lino but now produces roofing products such as ashphalt etc.
When I was growing up the south side of the canal was only used for dumping off cuts of lino which seemed like it was always on fire there was some old brickwork but that was it.
Cyril sometimes not a bad place to be..lol
where was/is fairy glen inbetween appley bridge and dangerous corner ?
alan lad, refer :-
Like your comment Cyril.....think it refers to a lot of us ...if we would admit it !!
How true, Jean F.
Jean, did you read my comments on 1st Jan.21:24 and 2nd Jan.13:30?
Did you go to Fairy Glen?
The mild weather is forecast to end and back to winter again!
Phil just seen the photos that you have uploaded to the album page of the lino and cant see anything of a factory on the south side of the canal.
I was mistaken, the factory on the south side of the Canal was an Oil & Varnish works not a lino factory.
Sorry Ernest,only just read your comment onthe 8th.No... I dont recall going to Fairy Glen.
