POCHIN (I.C.I.) OFFICES, 1973
We're in Brooks Lane in 1973 and here we see the soon-to-be-demolished offices of Pochin (Contractors) Ltd and Contractor's Plant (North West) Ltd. This building was originally the offices of the ICI Middlewich works and stood on the landscaped area in front of the current Pochin offices. The building is very much in the same style as the Pochin (formerly ICI) Club across the road which still exists today as the Middlewich Community Church. This slide must have been taken very shortly before demolition because I worked for Pochins for two years and served time in the new offices before moving just down the road to ERF in 1974.
