Re: Coke ovens

Hi Mick,
I used to play around this area when I was a lad, ecky thump!

We used to call them "the fairy caves" no idea why but I'm curious about those too.

Cheers,

Dennis.

Mick, slightly off thread I know, but I don't suppose you've got any pictures of the remains of the old POW camp in Stanhill do you?

Re: Coke ovens

There used to be something similar just to the east of the tracks by Accy railway station, I know they haven't existed there for donkeys now but I distinctly remember the bollocking I got from my mum for playing in there.

I saw something about that's where they where stashing the bodies after they'ed been grave robbing at St James.

No wonder my mum didn't want me playing in there :-)
