Remember once as a child , a helicopter landed on the roof of Heinz's. Me and my friends were so encased in the world of our council estate it was like watching as alien space ship landing . Great picture Mick

Nice photo, my uncle Billy Whittle worked there, it seems, for ever. Just curious, what is in the right hand background

Derek I think the estate might be Beech Hill and in the middle the houses might be on Wigan Lane, I can see what looks like a bridge, dont know where that can be.
In the back ground id Winter hill and the quarry on the right

I remember taking a girl home from the Casino club one night. She told me she worked at Heinz and was a sausage twister. I was in two minds to ask her if she fancied some overtime!
