Re: Huncoat Cable Cars !

Some excellent photos can be found at
Huncoat Garden Village | Regeneration Project for a better tommorrow
The gallery includes the aerial photo and another showing the rope way over Burnley Road looking towards Accrington. It clearly shows the letters ‘REDAC’.

We moves to Langdale Close, on the estate for my arrival because there wasn't any room left for a cot at Yorkshire St. Don't know a lot about Redac except that I spent my early years playing in the piles of bricks and sliding down the slope of the quarry & pond that was nect to Fish Lane. I did go to school in the village though. Unfortunately my Dad died in 1972 so I didn't get many years with him. If you can send the pic via email my address is:- theconboys@tiscali.co.uk. Many thanks, Alison.
Hi Alison, I am sorry but I do not know how to send photo's, pics, etc via Bill Gates's infernal machine as I am only a 72 year old learner with this new! stile technology, Sorry.
Your's, Taddy.

Alison,
Try the approach I showed earlier above.
I have also sent you an E Mail with the photo attached.
I hope you can access it.

Ha,Ha,Ha, Everything is easy when one is interested and knows how to do it.
give me a hammer and a big screwdriver and I will build anything but this Bill Gates's infernal machine is not really something that I am over interested in.
Your's Taddy.

Well, I used to think I was rubbish....but I am a learner too....ready to give it a go....and really the technology isn't new anymore.
I am sure I did some work on the internet for my city and guilds qualification....and that would be around 1987.

A City and Guilds qualification ? I can't even manage a Village and Street certificate but I am good with dogs and ferrets.
Stay happy as alway's, Your's Taddy.

Oh yes Taddy....a city and guilds in adult education....it was not really something I enjoyed doing, but was seconded from my job....they wanted me to teach student nurses....so I did it.
Much of it was practical. So, that was enjoyable....and I did well for a 'numb nooker ' who left school with no qualifications.
It is amazing what you can do when you are pushed(and being paid).

And anyone who can look out for dogs and ferrets is OK by me.
