Wonderful site
Rev Ismay diaries are in the West Yorkshire Archives in 16 boxes I believe. The Ismay One Name Study Group reviewed them in 2004 when we held our reunion at Dewsbury

What a wonderful trip down memory lane, congratulations to the administrator of the site. I was born and raised in what was the Marshall St. Lower Hopton. I have not been back to Hopton, or Mirfield for many years, but it was interesting to look at the pictures. Two in particular were fascinating..the one at Ledgard bridge showing the barge being launched. I saw many barges being built and launched with my friend Arthur Jennings, whose father was the foreman at the yard and lived 'on the premises'. The second picture that brought distant memories to the fore, was the view from the top of Waste Lane looking down towards what we called 'the top' and across the river to Mirfield itself.
Many childhood memories came flooding back, remembering the old steam trains thundering across the river Calder bridge. Climbing up and walking under the same bridge on the steelwork to look for pigeons.
All a long time ago, more than 55 years ago, but still fresh in the memory.
Well done and thank you.

Many of the men had no stomach for itThe authorities responded by offering a huge reward of £2000 for information on the culprits. But the oath still bound the luddites together. It was not until autumn that year that Benjamin Walker broke the oath and betrayed King Ludd and the luddites. The authorities acted quickly rounding up ring leaders. The more lowly participants were given the chance to give thermselves in and surrender their weapons. They were then pardoned and sent on their way, after all they could not imprison the full workforce. This process became known as "being untwisted - Intrested in this quote can I ask who cite this infomation, or can I quote the website as the author I want to add this part into my thesis.

west country keel "Sowerby Bridge"
With regard to Gordon Dixon's letters and photo.
According to my Dad, Douglas Carey, she was launched in 1942 and was skippered by his cousin George until 1944, my grandad Tom then had her until 1946 and then my dad's uncle Oliver until 1948. When Hargreaves bought the CCC she became my dad's until 1953 when I believe the Gwedoline was launced and was then skippered by my dad.
I have various photos of both barges.
In 2003 my dad sent his photos to the Waterways Museum, Goole to be copied and arhived. I hope this info is of some use to you.
