Hi paul and welcome to the site.

Stone manganese is not what it once was, it is still here but a lot of the buildings have been knocked down.

There is a thread all about it somewhere, i shall try and find it for you. smile

Hi Paul.
I was a Patternmaker at SMM from 1977-98 & remember Les well. He worked in the foundry with the likes of Mick & Benny Rigby on the bolting up gang. If you pm me with your email I can send you some photos but have just had a quick look & I don't think Les is on any of them. Your best bet on here will be Mike [Cameraman] who might have some photos of Les. Didn't Les's Son work there for a while. Here is a link on Wiki for Smm.

Hi Paul, Glad Keith has sent you the link to the photo of Les. worked with him for 6 years in the early 80's. He was a top bloke. I'm afraid thats the only one I can find of him at the moment.
Regards
Mike
