If I remember correctly the factory behind the bridge is Ditton steelworks. I went to a talk given by local historian Bert Starkey, he told of children going to meet their fathers of shift. they sheltered in I think it was a boiler house to keep warm, which exploded with the children inside. I had never heard this story before, or since but Bert was not one to fantasise.
