Post Buckets which went across Burnley Road

And here is a view of the buckets which many people remember, the name REDAC springs to mind.

Chris 7464.  I used to work at Redac and dont know about the tunnels belonging to the brickworks. I think they could have been part of the pit that was just up the road from the brickworks off Station Road.  It is well known that Huncoat is built on many old coal seams.  

Dave what was your dad called maybe I remember him.

Re: Accrington Bricks

I used to go regularly to the Quarry which was just off the King's Highway. My father used to repair the buckets and together with a team of maintenance fitters they would scale the pylons which used to carry the steel cables. As a matter of interest does anyone remember the small narrow gauge railways that used to run across Whinney Hill bottom.
