Community Day celebrations on Smith House Estate - 1948

St John’s Ambulance Brigade Band, many people would say they were the finest of its kind. It excelled in almost every competition it entered and when it was marching through the town everyone stood and took notice, stopping what they were doing just to watch. Such was its precision in marching, playing and deportment, a fine tribute to the young members of the band. Here they are leading the community day event at Smith House Estate in 1948.

    We live at the top of Rayner Rd , brighouse. I am informed that next to our house at the top of Rayner rd there was a mill that was destroyed by fire in the 1970’s. Just wondering if any information known about the mill ??
    Many thanks
