Hi R. S-S. It was me that fist put up these 3 photos, they were saved by my uncle bob, Robert Charnley ( printer at CPA ), when searching for details, this was a few years ago now, I found the same info on several sites, do not remember which I used now ! My dad Fred Charnley was the engineer at CPA for many years, hence my interest in the CPA !

Think you're right, GJ. The boats are on the opposite side to the towpath, so the house is behind the people, and the camera is pointing towards Furness.

I worked on a temporary basis at the Botany for quite a few months and Tommy Lomas lived just around the corner from me. He worked on the Kiers in number 2 plant (Germany).
He always drank his tea on his shift out of a white pint pot. But sometimes he was busy and he put the pot on top of one of the Kiers to keep his tea warm. The inside of his pint pot was dark brown with tea stains and one day when Tommy was on the opposite shift to me I decided to do him a favour and clean his pint mug.
I took it up to the chemical wells in number 1 dept and tied a piece of string to the handle and left it dangling in the bleach for an hour. It came out pristine and I cleaned it under the steam pipes and put it back on the Kiers. The next day we were both on the same shift and Tommy went to make a cup of tea. I was standing by, chest pushed out, waiting for some well deserved praise. Then there was an almighty shout from Tommy: 'Who the hell has done this to my pot?' I made a hasty retreat and Tommy told all the workforce that he would have to bury his pot in the garden for 6 weeks to get it back to normal. I never told him. Perhaps I should have done.

An affable gentle man who made the Shady so popular that on busy weekends the place was rammed. I believe the Shady during his time had 3 darts and 3 dominoes teams in the local league at once. How times have changed.

This was 1914.
Philip Milner Oliver was selected as Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for the Liberal party in the Knutsford constituency. The election was postponed due to the outbreak of the first world war.
After the war he was the Liberal candidate for the newly created constituency of Manchester Blackley in the general elections in 1918 (3rd), 1922 (2nd), 1923 (elected), 1924 (2nd), 1929 (elected), 1931 (2nd), 1935 (2nd) and 1945 (3rd). He also stood in the 1933 Altrincham by-election (2nd). He died in 1954 aged 69.

Do you know what Gnats? When my dear old friend Peter Jodrell died his daughter Alison organised the wake at the White Horse in Horwich End. It was surprising because when her mum died a few years previously the do was at the Shady Oak. Much more fitting.
I asked Alison why she had chosen the White Horse and she told me it was in memory of Peter's grandfather who was once the landlord there. When I told her Pete's granddad was landlord of the Seven Stars she was speechless and said she had never even heard of a pub called the Seven Stars. Thinking back I probably should have kept my trap shut.

Back in the early 1950s,as a lad, I caught many a beautiful small wild brown trout from this river, the Sett, and also further upstream and onto the River Kinder. Happy days amidst magnificent scenery - now getting on for almost 70 years ago-but the memories don't fade !!

Hi Lorna,
I put this photo and a lot more and also information about the CPA at Bingswood from a CPA magazine, I seem to remember it was dated 1951 but not very sure. I'll see if I can locate the magazine and confirm the date.

What a fantastic photo! Does anyone have any ideas who took it or where it might be sourced from?
