“Just past the bottom of Wood Street, in the centre of Middleton, was a shop called Redmans. Every Wednesday they had bacon ribs for sale. These provided a very cheap meal with cabbage, bread and butter. Before Langley was built there were always enough ribs for all who wanted them, but after it was built you had to queue and some people were unlucky. This caused a lot of resentment amongst the housewives of Middleton.” – Ann R
