Warrington Collegiate Memory

I wonder how many readers can remember before the College was built and the block of flats, what was on the land between the corner of Long Lane/Winwick Road (long before there was ever a roundabout there) and the other corner at Alder Lane/Winwick Road?

It was huge bales of raw cotton, presumably stacked and stored there for use by Armitage & Rigby, better known as ‘The Factory’. I’m going back many years, probably 50+ though I can clearly ‘see them’ even now. (Information supplied)
