Pick Fords Chimney - a Memory of Crook.

Many people assume the P H on the chimney was painted on
This is not correct the letters were made of fully glazed white bricks these bricks had also been used in the toilet / showers and wash room
I worked there as an electrician from 1973 until 1984 when I was transferred to the sister works at hunwick
Before I left crook works I was looking in the building behind our electrical workshop which was the old painters shop and found numerous piles of these glazed bricks still in tact
Also you mentioned thistle flat signal box
I recently purchased an A4 picture of this box showing the old water tank on one side of the line and the box and pic fords chimney behind it
