Chapeltown correction

Have your say

I saw the two pages about Chapeltown in The Star, and I feel that I must correct you about something. The new “Thorncliffe” Leisure Centre is at High Green and not at Chapeltown. It is built on the Thorncliffe sports field.

You forgot to mention the Izal toilet roll factory, which used to be on Station Road too. I worked there for 10 years until I left to have my son – he’s now 47 years old. It was a good place to work and had mostly women working there. It belonged to Newton Chambers. Parramore’s steel firm was also at Chapeltown, up the top of Smith Street.
