THIS photograph might bring back some memories for workers at the former Stanton Ironworks.

It was submitted by regular contributor to Memory Lane, Alan Harlow, who said it was taken in either 1981 or 1982 at the Erewash Foundry.

Alan had left the ironworks in 1980 to work as a milkman but returned to take photographs including this one.

It shows a 10-tonne ingot being created by workers David Knighton and Ron Hall.
