Re: Board Topic – Slag Heap…
Barry, I was brought up playing on it and getting stuck clipping up one of the overhang at about 120feet. The fire brigade were called and have had fear others ever since but worked for ten yrs at great heights in shipyards.
I detailed this in a post recently, have many memories of this and of the village, riding the local freight trains from coke ovens heading down to the river to take the waste freight away.
