I have a few memories of Dunford Hadfields East Hecla Works, Vulcan Rd in the early 70's.

I joined the Works Engineers team who were putting in a Bar Mill at that time. My uncle Gerry Ward (now deceased) was a slinger there at that time. My wife uncle Jack Goodinson (also deceased) was a grinder there around that time also.

Also remember Barry Sculley who was a successful motorcycle racer at the time. Think he worked in one of the labs.
