Wallerscote works... now owned by TATA... it used to be I.C.I.
This is the river that flows through my town... it's not the part of river I share on my walks... but it's the same.
The River Weaver was diverted as a navigation so ships could reach the chemical works.
The images are of the factory that used to employ thousands of workers in my little town.
The scrub beyond was covered by buildings not that long ago.
The chemical works still produce Soda Ash but it's nothing like the factory I knew as a child.
Dad was one of the managers at Wallerscote works.
His office was in the brick building in the background.... I still have his name plaque from his office door.
