Demolition of Furnace Cottages 1963

Another row of cottages falls in Carlin How, they were very near to the works.  Rather a dangerous place to leave a car, don’t you think?

Fred Miller tells : “I was born at number one Front Street on 21st December 1937; later moved to 26 Westray Street. I have fond memories of ‘The Bottom End ‘Bonfire on the top common, playing in Hally Ballies. I still visit every year mostly to visit my old friend Peter Libby”.

Thanks to Fred Miller for that memory.
