  1. I am not sure where I might have read it, but believe there may have been a famous(?) foundry in this area called the Vulcan Street Foundry? Any help anyone?

      Matthew,
      there was a Vulcan foundry at Newton Le Willows that produced railway llocomotives, many of which served on Teesside ( W.D. Austerity and J 94 tank engine )

  2. Continuing my TV appearance theme:

    Also appearing on ‘Auf Wiedersehen Pet’ on Tuesday night, ITV4…….

  3. I have just read somewhere that this wall is a reconstruction of three sections of wall surrounding the salt works, the three sections being dismantled and then reguilt together to form one long wall. Does anyone know whether this is correct? It would account for the three different commemorative plaques.
