Aerial View of Cross Gates Carriage/Works during fire incident
Description:
29th March, 1975 Aerial view of Cross Gates Carriage Works on Manston Lane, the firm of Charles H. Roe. A small fire is being attended to by several engines. Nine metro buses worth £120,000 each had to be pushed to safety. Charles H Roe's company was formed in 1916. After closure in the 1980's new investment was generated and buses are still being built here under the name of Optare Lted. Curving down from the right edge is Manston Lane. Barnbow Royal Ordnance factory is bottom right. People can be seen walking along the path on the site of the dismantled railway line which runs from top to bottom, left. Running parallel with it are houses and gardens in Pendas Way.
