Mick I can still see the outline of the old Parbold quarry that was filled in with Manchesters rubbish.
I remember the rubbish trains coming to a railway siding in Appley Bridge then being moved over the fields by dump trucks.
Thinking back we used to have some fun in those fields.

Joan, I think it was Appley Bridge West Quarry that was used for Manchester's rubbish. I don't recall Parbold Quarry being used, however I stand to be corrected.

Joan do you remember the old abandoned Parbold golf course, it was so nice lying on the greens and in the bunkers with our bottles of Gaymers Old English, then calling at the chippy after

Isn't Manchester refuse about to resume being dumped there again?

Veronica, in case you haven't seen my post on yesterdays PaD, the complete series of Murder by the Sea are to be broadcast on CBS Reality beginning with series one this Sunday 3rd October at 9.00pm.

Apologies Cyril, is it about the Merrifield murders? I have problems sometimes copying and pasting. I don't know whether I can get CBS on my telly. I do watch a lot of ytube though.

Mick I cant remember being in a bunker with you, maybe it was our Jennifer that you was with.
I remember first seeing those big horned highland cattle that Peter Moore had brought down from Scotland walking around us.

Does anyone have a history of Parbold Quarry? I believe my ancient relatives where either the owners or had some partin its development. Does the name John Buckley Winnard ring any bells?

It's like Radio Times revisited on this website?

I'm not sure Veronica as having looked at the information of theBlackpool murder mentioned on episode one it's the one committed by Stephen Akinmurele. The Merrifield's are not in this series as you can see in the programme guide, link below. It appears that a lot of Murders by the Sea episodes and series were made, it's finding which one.

I've just found this and as mentioned the Merrifield's are featured in the final episode of the series broadcast then in 2019, but for some reason it doesn't say which one.

With the Google Chrome browser that I have installed I just highlight the link, right click and there's an option listed to go direct to the link, which is handy.

I will make notes and hope for the best. This daft iPad 'hits and misses' most of the time. Thanks anyway Cyril. Zoonie is right it is like the TV Times! ;~))
