Nice one Bob. Weren't there some ugly power stations built in towns before the days of the mega-stations and the Grid!

Hi Everyone,

Was told to post this here...

We have been researching about Yayes & Duxbury Mill for the past few weeks but have found no actual pictures of the mill with the rolling stock. We have found on pic of the mill but it's not good as it was taken some distance away. And a few pictures of Annie the engine and her history once she was rescued and restored. Can anyone help please?

Bodge, never come across it. As far as I know the only successful opposed piston diesels were used in heavy marine practice. The usual reason for new ideas like this failing was unorthodox design meeting inertia in an industry already set up for conventional production, and subsequent costs.

Bob, isn't it funny how jacks regard some stacks as their own personal territory. I can remember how pleased Peter Tatham was when I went to him for help on Ellenroad chimney. The first thing he said was that it had always been his grandfather's stack. (He was ugly as well!)

I remember telling the curator of a Scottish museum one day about Robert Aram collecting chimneys and he pursed his lips; "I foresee one insuperable problem, transport." I had to explain to him that with care and a big enough low loader you could shift them to anywhere you wanted. Problem is I think he believed me!

I've just remembered that when N&R dropped Jubilee chimney at Padiham one section remaied intact showing clearly how the brickies had chucked the bricks in anyhow under the skin and Robert persuaded Norman to try to lift it. It crumbled as soon as the strain came on it.

Nice film Bodge and it blew away twenty minutes of my morning! Opening shots are Ilkley Moor and the valley towards Skipton. The industrial scenes ar heavy woolen district and I'd guess at Halifax or Huddersfield. Beyond that I can't help you, but a nice film, well worth watching.

What a good site Bodge. I can see myself spending a bit of time on there. I noticed that the narrator was a member of a Clarion Cycling Club according to the badge on the pocket of his blouson. They visited Bolton Abbey and Burnsall on their run as well as some good shots of skipton from the castle. Good stuff, will be revisiting.
