    Pilkington opened its first factory in the area in 1919 and built the ‘garden village’ of Kirk Sandall - with leisure facilities including bowling and cricket clubs - to house its workforce. Many of the streets take their names from districts of St Helens such as Dentons Green and Sutton.
    At one time, around 3,000 people worked for Pilkington on the Doncaster site, although the number of employees had been much reduced in recent years. The site was sold in 2009 and Pilkington finally closed its operations there in the autumn of that year.​


    Visited with a non-member and also bumped into zero81 on the way out. Nice to meet you :)
    Was quite a relaxed mooch about, but if you notice that a couple of pics are taken between stacks of wood its because there was a security guy walking around and I had to lay low, while still taking pics of course.

    And this was the "fearsome evil thing" that scared the life out of my friend when he jumped over a fence in the dark...He likes fruit pastilles though. :D
