Here are some more photos showing what Charringtons was like back in the days that their warehouse stood at the left of The Drove as you travelled towards Denton Corner.

Hi Colin, what a fantastic set of photos, they bring back many happy memories. It was hard graft but we had fun working there. The second to last photo, another Charrington delivery, where was that taken?

I'm hoping these photos will encourage others to contribute to this wonderfull site. Thanks again for adding these photos they are brilliant.

The two pictures of the drays were taken when we had moved to Sayers Common. Thought I would sneak them in as they are realvent.

I would love a copy of your DVD you made, if thats possible.

If you give your e-mail to the editor, he can pass it on to me.
