Latest post of the previous page:

All I can say in my defence is they were in the collection you gave me, so I haven't a clue. :)

Since there is doubt I won't put them on the site. Wonder where they are from then. Probably never know.

Morning Norm,

Most definitely not Fernilee but I suspect they were taken on the Yorkshire Reservoir scheme starting at Ladybower and the series of reservoirs on the way to Sheffield.

Perhaps Gail might trace them from over there. I am certain she would be able to come up with results.

Thanks for your vote of confidence R.S-S.......
I think I have found the location of the previous three photos .... Birchinlee
.....When the flooding of the Derwent Valley was proposed, however, one of the conditions imposed on the Water Board was the provision of care and accomodation for all its employees and their dependents. And so Birchinlee was proposed, taking its name from the farm on land that was to be developed, and providing homes for up to 1,000 people at any one time: the married workmen and their families in blocks of four huts; groups of 8 to 10 unmarried men in larger semi-detached huts, presided over by a hutkeeper and his family; the foremen in semi-detatched huts, with their families. In keeping with Victorian values regarding strict class segregation, the managers and engineers overseeing the project lived away from the village altogether.....

Brilliant, great result. As soon as I saw the article ended with the words Tin Town that was already enough proof.

The photos can stay on here but not going on the site.

Congrats gritch

See,
I knew she would solve the puzzle.
There is no end to her powers of detection.

At the end of the year when you hand out the awards Norm I think special mention should be made of this Chief Inspector; she is way out on her own.

Robert, is that what the photo should look like. Looks very low in detail and only a few colours. I am wondering if it's because it is a bmp and not loaded correctly.

But if it is what you expect fair enough.

It doesn't see to display quick enough as well, anyway here is a jpeg of it - will look the same anyway but may load easier.

Ok...found it:-

The following extract is taken from
https://www.europese-bibliotheek.nl/nl/ ... /artikel/8

“Although the name of this house Foxhome has changed, now FoxhilI, the surrounding countryside has not. Foxhome commands spectacular views overlooking Kettleshulme, built 1907 on a corner of land originally owned by the occupant of Fallhey Farm. It is set on the side of the hill at the far end of Start Lane. Until the mid-1940s the Foxhome reservoir, above the house, supplied water for Fallhey and Slatersbank farms, neighbours of this house. Postcards were widely used as greetings eards in the earlier part of this century. This one especially cornmissioned as a Christmas card by the world famous cellist, Carl Fuchs, who chose Foxhorne for his country retreat after an extensive search for an idyllic setting. A copy of his autobiography has been passed on from owner to owner as Foxhome has been sold, to the present day.”

And ...if you go to this link

http://www.maths.manchester.ac.uk/~bl/p ... ridge.html

and click on the pdf map link it will give you a rough idea as to location of the building.

Thanks as always Gail,

Really good information that I shall keep. A bit of a shame that Carl had such an unfortunate surname. Still you can't have everything I suppose.
