The Capper Neil empire as was...
The Capper Neil empire as was...
In the distance is what used to be the factory units that made up the various companies part of the Capper Neil empire back in the eighties. My dad was a time served welder and started his career for William Neils before Capper came on the scene. Some twenty years later I ended up spending 6 months at a training centre on the same site. Nowadays it's looking a bit worse for wear although there is still a lot of activity there. In the foreground you can see what is the start of Wheatacre Woods. There is an ongoing initiative by the Forestry Commission to bring woodland areas once blighted by industry.
