Looking at old maps I think the Walkden Works was roughly about here, backing onto the Surrey Canal.

Not sure what this is all about but hey they are happy, enjoying themselves and that is all that matters. :)
Shame to see the Bramcote Arms like that, sadly pub closers are taking the life out of the community. :(

The colour pics Kiwi has posted above are very “atmospheric”. There is something very nice about seeing old pics showing folk happy and coming together. Despite the impending wrecking ball and razing to the ground of everything in sight except the Bramcote, look how many people were there and having fun. The strength of community and camaraderie shows so clearly from the photos…
