Childhood 60s Memeoreis - a Memory of Heysham.

I have fond memories of Heysham as a child, during the 1960s, drinking nettle beer with my brother and sisters. My auntie Hilda and uncle Billy lived in Ulverston, and my uncle worked at the ICI works, I think it was Half Moon Bay, we used to go and sit on the rocks while my uncle used to bring us our dinner which I presume he got from the works. I've not been back to Heysham since being a child. I'm now 57 years old and will be going back in the summer, maybe it's all changed now but nevertheless I'll go to see and relive some of my childhood. PS. I remember once going aboard a destroyer to have a look round. I got pictures somewhere so would like to add them soon.
