  8. Hi Peter, Thank you for your kind help. Answear to page 37-No735. Your No3 picture of the grinding shop was next door the the No1 Roll Hardening shop heat treatment-No4 in the pic. If you came out of your office and looked to the right there was a red door that led to the heat treatment, going through there also took you to the grinding shop and from there led you to 37 yard 37 Gate. ---------- No2 Roll Hardening shop was down at 40 Gate next door the the South Treatment shop at 41 Gate. No3 Roll Hardening shop was on carlisle st the big Black building behind the Corner pin pub. as on your pics I'm sure you'll have passed at least No1 Roll Hardening shop at sometime in your earlier years there. Your Brian and thanks again Peter.

Looking down the rail track to the right was an area of the melting shop and further down at the black builing was most of the Machine Shops, 2 M/C roll grinders 5bay and 6bay. Across at the left was Bessama shop and the Tyer Mill. Walked Up/Down on that track loads of times. Again lots of memories Peter. Yours Brian
