Thanks Carole , I,m sorry I've no idea as to how old it is , I know that we have a spade that was Tony's Grannies i'ts well over a hundred years old , she was three months short of being a hundred when she died and that was 40 yrs ago ..

Wow Amy that is a grand old age isnt it! the oldest in our family has been 80 my lovely Auntie Irene, she was my Mums elder sister and we were so close in my childhood has she lived in the next street and my Mum and Aunty shared the childcare of me and my brother and Aunty Irene's three daughters, both sisters working alternative shift work as machinist, those were the days, funny how a watering can bring back so many vivid chilhood memories!

Nice memories Carole , I can remember being told stories of the mills and knockers up hitting the windows with poles in the mornings to wake the workers and the sound of cloggs going up the streets , i'm not sure if it was all true .. :o)
