Good pic of Oakdale Road, but does anyone remember the little kiosk just past the car on the left of the bridge?. It used to sell cigs, newspapers and a few sweets from what I recall.

Hi all the kiosk was owned by a blind man name JOE GAHAN. I passed it every day on my way to gorsedale school. The field was known locally as the claypits , it was a tip for the british leather tanning company situated on new chester road by lairds. Also the manganese bronze tipped there to, Way back i did here it was once a horse race track?.

There wasn't much wasted off the hides the British Leather used.
The fleshings (the bits of flesh on the inside of the hide)were sent to Thomson Bros next door to the tannery where I was told they were used to make aspic jelly for pies wartime era.
Then used to make glue later.
The stuff dumped in Oakdale would have been the hair off the hides in the lime pits which would have been sucked up by a gully sucker and conveyed to the tip and general factory rubbish by a tipper lorry

Is the bridge in the photo going over what is now the tunnel approach road? (I guess it was the old railway cutting when the photo was taken).

Where was Milton Road in relation to Oakdale Road?

Milton road is off wheatland lane it is cul-de-sac just before Lloyds corner. if you come along oakdale road pass Ashville road at the t junction turn left and Milton road is on your left.

Hi Solvas, we always knew it as the lime pits, I think maybe they used lime to try to desolve the waste from British leather. I remember in the hot weather the smell was rank.

Your dead right it stunk to high heavens, we used to play on the claypits , think it was called that because they used the clay to make blocks at a place opposite citrine road called sturgies I think it was spelt like that, from the clay.The wagon drivers would chase all the kids when the tanker arrived to unload the lime.

I lived in Citrine rd in the prefabs when I was a lad, do you remember Donkins we called it the soap factory, I think they made disinfectant, it was on the corner of oakdale and citrine rd. Zipper put up some great photos of the prefabs.
