That be the United Reformed church, I believe. Of which my dad's cousin, Cuthbert, was the incumbent.
No, St James, Calderbrook, High Anglican. Although generally the Methodys and their ilk ruled round here, the handloom weavers, prevalent before the mills of the industrial revolution, were an independent minded lot. The building just beyond the tunnel chimney in the middle shot is the UR schoolhouse where your relative was incumbent. The "Temple" was across the road, now gone, the schoolhouse is now an old folks home, the road is Temple Lane.
I think it's like Shangri la ... a mythical place of peace and prosperity.
I would have said Atlantis but there's never enough water.
Almost. Gordon Harvey, of Fothergill and Harvey, the big mills by the canal on the Littleborough flight, was very forward thinking. He invented the recycling of boiler smoke back through the fire to clean up the air, if WW1 hadn't happened he would have had a clean air act through parliament. The houses built by the canal at Dean Head on the summit pound, were made of brick made from mill fire ash. The estate I live on was built in 55 of prefab Airey Houses, to house workers. They were somewhat draughty, but otherwise forward thinking, roomier than current trends, They had a new brick skin in '85, replacing the concrete pebbledash panels hung on a metal frame., there are still a few panels, 1ft x 3ft, lurking around the garden. While there was a coal fire in the front room, the chimney is between that and the kitchen, not on the dividing wall. There was a "back oven" in the kitchen, sitting in the chimney. That has gone but the whole stack heats up with the woodstove I fitted, heating the kitchen and bedrooms. The ecofan makes it even better (tin hat on!).

JohnV: There are other drugs but I haven't found the side effects with Ramipril to be bad, it seems to just make my throat a bit more sensitive so things that might have just tickled my throat and make me want to clear it now make me cough.

loddon: The cough is the only one I get from ramipril, although the combinatins of drugs I am on has interesting effects.
