Re: Marconi Felling
A relative of mine, Joe Corbitt, worked at Marconi from the late 60s / early 70s through the 80s. He was a fitter and always spoke fondly of his time there and the people he worked with. The names I remember him mentioning were Peter Coyne, Sid Boak and Davy McCready (not sure of spelling).
I also remember going with him to the Leek shows that they used to have there every year, so I got to see the site a little bit.
So sad to think of it all being derelict now, like so much of the industries that used to be in our region.
