I would just like to say that the photo's bring back some memories of my time as a Plumber & Electrician
in and around Marple. Notably file 5/2676 Stephouses as my father and I put in some water purifiers (basically porcelain candles to which the water passed through before reaching the tap) in the 70's because hen muck and diesel was getting into the water course from the chicken farm at the top of the road.Then several years later we blocked up the well and put in a water main, digging a trench down the lane from Horsepool.
Also file 30/2676 Manor Farm, the white extention (centre) without the Georgian windows. I worked on that which was very interesting as its a listed building things had to be in keeping with the original even the large sandstone roof slabs. Why aren't the windows Georgian now?
Thanks for the memories.
