Working Life







 Welcome to our Humble abode, this website is to be a journey, through past , present and future, Whats it about i hear you ask? this is an extraordinary journey of sweat blood and tears




Little Stoke

 This is A Fowler DNB Double crank compound 12 ton Steam Road Roller, Boiler number 17487 Reg number LG2251.


This Roller was supplied new to Samuel Jackson, Wistaston Crewe, in July 1929. It became part of their fleet of steam vehicles and equipment that worked over a large area. Reports from previous drivers told of working in the Bolton area and even into Yorkshire. It also helped to roll the runways of Tern Hill airfield during W.W.II.

In 1958 Jacksons sold the roller to F.H.M contractors (Newcastle Under Lyme). A lot of work was done by them in the Leek area and making the A.34 through Newcastle into dual carriageway. The roller came to the end of its working life by 3 problems

1] It moved into a smokeless zone on the A.34.

2] The Experienced Driver retired.

3] The engine suffered a serious lack of power.

At this point F.H.M decided to sell this roller for scrap.
