I live and work nearby (used to live in Brinscall just round the corner as well) and I don't believe for one minute that there are steam trains in there, but this video doesn't prove anything. Lithium was processed at Chorley in the 50's and might have been stored there. So what? Hearsay from locals? Right. What a waste of 12 minutes of my life.

Only thing factual that I've seen is that BAE listed Heapey until recently as magazines (storage areas basically) for Chorley (closed) and Glascoed in Wales (operational). When Chorley shut, I saw an FAQ as part of the consultation documents that said that there were no plans to close Heapey in the short term. If you want hearsay, then I spoke to a colleague who worked at ROF until recently and he said that the old hands there claimed there was a tunnel linking Chorley and Heapey until the M61 was built in the 60's. And I've no more way of proving that than any of the other rumours about the place............

Interesting(ish) video. Seemed to repeat himself quite a lot tbh!

I do agree with Andy though, its just some dude on a website, being filmed. Could be saying anything he liked! Although what he's saying isnt far fetched!

Ive heard the 'tunnel link' hearsay before, although the one I heard was that the tunnel was cut off when the M61 was built.

Nearest ROC is Hough Hill aka Denham Hill, IIRC? Great views from the trig point up there.

ROF Heapey has been opened up now, has it not? Rumour has it that it's going to be built on! There's trains in them thar hills... http://www.angelfire.com/mn2/Oubliette/Heapey.html

Why else would there be mega voltage to that side of the camp?


toecutter...
So you mean they were herding people into the pool and then electrocuting them? Your knowledge of physics is embarrassing!
