Dalton Bank Nature Reserve

Dalton Bank nature reserve, just behind what used to be the ICI chemical factory. There is still is a chemical factory, just nowhere near as big as ICI used to be. Aparently according to my Grandma the Germans failed to find Huddersfields ICI works in World War 2, although at the moment it looks like a bomb site. The biggest threat to workers at the factory from what i could find was this :- "At the ICI factory, workers were sometimes accidentally gassed while manufacturing chemicals, and had to be taken to moors above the Colne Valley until they recovered.
