Plane Crash, Helmshore 1933

(Further information kindly added by Chris Aspin on 4th Jan 2020)
"It came down at Irongate on January 31, 1933, a few
hours before I was born. It was flying from
Scotland to Manchester, but ran short of fuel and
made a forced landing. The pilot and his
passenger were unhurt, but in coming
down the plane struck a cable which supplied
the huge poultry farm run by the Rodwells. Big losses
were incurred.. 
Best wishes, 

Chris
