'Dane Mills Bosley' dates back to the mid-eighteenth century when the machinery was driven by water wheels, powered by water from the River Dane. Over the years, the Mills have been engaged in many different business activities including, Metallurgical, Textiles, Corn Milling & Organic Fibre Production. This book provides detailed information about the people and the industrial processes in place, at Dane Mills Bosley, during the 1960s, in a small village in rural Cheshire.
Author Chris Pownall says “I trust this book will capture the culture of the Mills where I served my engineering apprenticeship between 1959 & 1966. It should appeal to those interested in social history as well as followers of our industrial heritage from a bygone era.”

Fascinating and engaging autobiography of career after Royal Air Force service. By Derek Rosser The author’s literary efforts covering his experiences as a National Serviceman in the RAF in the 1950s (A Reluctant Recruit) generated such a favourable reception, so much so that he embarked on a second, more or less true, account of his life as a typical boy growing up in the thirties and forties (Call Me Valentine).
