There is a small estate of new built houses at the top of Barnes St.
They had a view of sorts at one time. The 'wall' knocked thousands of their value.

Just after having my second child in 1982, I didn't go back working full time for about 5 years. I did a Saturday job for a local estate agents.

Amongst my duties was to work at some new build bungalows that were being sold behind this building (wasn't there then). Did quite well. Saw later that there was lots of complaints about the Express building (who can blame them), expressing their anger at the estate agent for not letting them know about these plans... I wasn't aware.

Have felt guilty ever since... was only following orders, honest.

That's brilliant!!!

Great detective work by the Accrington bloodhounds.

I remember Findel's at Nelson. They were set up in an old mill factory next to the motorway.

They must have transferred everything from Joseph Arnold's premises to the Nelson site and then demolished the Church site and built that giant metal box in its place. Then they moved it all back again.

That big metal shed is a blot on the landscape. It can be seen from the top of the coppice

Ya, new there was something to do with the properties being devalued, can remember seeing the photo in the Obs with Jack Grime pointing at the wall

Re: Wallace Arnold's/Express Gift's

Some of those new builds are rented out now - presumably because some owners have negative equity.
