In Keresley End in the 60's, we put up with the crap from the Homefire plant so the rest of the country could 'go smokeless'!!!!

Hi Anne Wave I think this has been said on here before, but do you remember the morning where we awoke to find that we had received a shower of black soot every where? It covered everything including my new paintwork, which then needed re-painting. The Homefire Plant did settle our claim. Wave

I used to watch the fuel being tipped into the lorries from the chute while waiting for my boyfriend to finish his shift who worked there and lived on the village, both my sisters and I married Keresley village men, one of my sisters still lives on the village and has noticed since the closing of the Homefire plant, how cleaner it is inside her home, no thick dust any more.
