Made in Dukinfield. Yes, congratulations to New Labour for their 13 year record of utterly failing to support British manufacturing.

Anyone know where all the bricks were made for the local mills and factories? Was there a local brickworks or were they shipped in from afar?

John Halls on Charles Street made bricks, chimney pots etc. My father worked there in 1930, It has now been pulled down and there are small work units down there now
