Can you help I see on your site an aerial photo of Blackmore in the late 1950s.
Where was this copied from please?
I was a child there in that time and seek information regarding the concrete works that was situated behind Fingrith Hall Lane.
Thank you for any assistance.

You can just make out the site of the concrete works on the aerial photograph of Blackmore (http://www.blackmorehistory.co.uk/blackmore1958.html ). (The photograph was found among church records as a calendar.) The site is now covered by Orchard Piece, a small housing estate which also took up the orchard to the rear of Poplars (aka Laurences), a house which stands on The Green. Orchard Piece was built about 1968. A resident once told me where the entrance to the site was off of Fingrith Hall Road, in filled by a house when Orchard Piece was completed.
I will post your enquiry on the blog to see whether anyone has any further information.
