laundry?

Permalink  
 

I remember, it would be the early to mid 1960's a derelict laundry there were lots of sinks.  I don't remember much of a roof on it.  It was somewhere in neston.  Any insight would be appreciated.  Thank you

The Deeside Electric Works was established at Moorside in 1882, but by 1887 the site was abandoned, due to the relocation of the business to Helsby. In 1896 the site was redeveloped by the Neston and Parkgate Hygenic Laundry and Cleaning Company. By 1914 the successful venture had a workforce of 80 employees, but the works had closed by the 1950s (Place 1996, 79). During the inter-war period a ‘fine art’ studio was established on Hinderton Road, producing high quality silver work. However the workshop ceased to trade in 1939 (Place 1996, 88-9).

I used to play down there in the late 70's/early 80's we always used to think it was haunted when we were kids, I've seen some photo's somewhere I will try and dig them out.
