An early aerial view of part of the British Insulated Cables manufacturing site and surrounding housing in Prescot. For many decades, a large percentage of Prescot's workforce worked for the 'Wire Works'. This continued until recent years when new technology and the introduction of fibre-optics brought about a decline in the workforce.
