Rivet Lad - Boiler Making in the Lancashire Mill Towns of the 1960s
Home > Rivet Lad - Boiler Making in the Lancashire Mill Towns of the 1960s
Alan McEwan
Alan’s book, written in his own
inimitable style takes the reader back
to the exciting days of the 1960s when
he was the youngest member of Carrot
Crampthorn’s Squad of Boiler Makers
working on heavy structural repairs on
Lancashire and Cornish Boilers, a
Cochran Vertical Boiler, a Stationary
Locomotive Boiler, a huge steam
Accumulator converted from a Lancashire
Boiler and much more.

The book’s larger-than-life characters,
the hard as nails, ale-supping, chain-
smoking Boiler Makers: Carrot
Crampthorn, Reuben Ramsbottom, Teddy
Tulip, Paddy O’Boyle, and not least Alan
himself are, to a man, throw-backs to
times gone by when British industry was
the envy of the world.
