Subject: RE: LyrHelpReq: Chemical Worker's Song
I worked for ICI Billingham in the late 60s and rememmber Ron from those days. The Stockton Folk Club was originally at the "Stork and Castle", but moved to "The Sun" when it closed. It's still there after about 36 years and Ron still runs it. Linda and I had a very pleasant evening there last year when we took time out from Whitby to visit it.
At one time the usual directions for finding the ICI works were - "Drive up the A1 to Scotch Corner - then sniff !".
