The mill company outing photograph

READER Sandra Taylor, of Walsden, has been able to shed more light on this image from the early 60s, which had been sent in by Irena Brown, whose husband Philip is on it, and featured in our March 22 edition.

Sandra says it is a mill company event but not Mons Mill. “I am almost sure this is a group of workers from John Cockcroft and Sons at their annual dinner. It was probably taken at the Swan & Royal – Clitheroe? - although I am not 100 per cent sure on this. The people on the photo either worked at Derdale Mill or Birks Mill.

“I’m the one squatted down second from right on the front row. My husband is second from the left on the front row.”
