There were two ice cream factories - the lower one was Thornton's owned by Harry Thornton of Middleton and managed by my father Eric Turner. I can remember standing on a box cracking fresh eggs into a huge vat(or it seemed huge to me at the time) to make special ice cream as eggs had just come off ration. The higher building was Granelli's and the thing I remember about them is that they used amonia as something to do with the freezing, I'd wandered in there once and the smell sent me weird, I've never liked smelling salts since!
