I like this picture of the Muck that was taken before South Lynn was built.
I wonder if some of the old South lynners on here can locate where their
houses were built.

What date was South Lynn built? I lived on Saddlebow Road from 1934 and I think the Houses were probably Victorian. The houses over the road were Council Houses, but may have been there from the 1930's. Were they built especially for Railway families? or to house people from the very old areas of King's Lynn.

South lynn and North Lynn and Gaywood were first built in the 30s to house
the families from the slum clearance houses that were in all parts of the town.
If you look right back in this history section you will see pictures of all the old
areas that the people that moved into the council houses came from.

The chemical works was known as the MUCKWORKS by us Linnets. There are several
threads and pictures on here of it. Search +MUCK and trawl through what comes up
and you will see them.

Here is a picture taken just before demolition.
No date, but I assume late 1970's.

Appso, I remember cycling around the muck works site when I was in high school, maybe around 2001-02 and always wondered what the concrete structure was on the other side of the river..

And now I've seen this photo I finally know what it looked like!

Any idea what it was? When I used to go it was just full of water and burnt out cars

I worked in that building and it was called the NAR SHED. the concrete part of it were great big bins with sloping sides that held
the different types of fertilizes. When a lorry or railtruck came in for a particular type an overhead crane would pick big grab fulls
of fertilizer put it in the top of a bagging plant and then bagged and sent down shutes to the lorry or railtruck. I spent many happy
hours working on the baggers, and also loading said trucks and lorries. In the picture you can still see the remains of the cranes
in the roof.

Muckworks after the 53 floods. The old electric trams you can see in the picture was still in use in the early 60s. I used to love
driving them around the works.
