Epworth Gas Works - a Memory of Epworth.

Epworth gas works was located down Tottermire Lane next to the fire station. I was brought up there as a child in the 1950s and had some happy times there. My father Horace was the manager there, and his brothers also worked there, Tom and Eric, I believe my father took over from his father Tom. If my memory serves me correctly I think the works closed in 1963. I have loads of pics, if anyone is interested feel free to contact me.
