How Joseph Priestley changed my life ...
In the summer of 1990 I
was a producer at Yorkshire Television. On 7 August
I bought a mountain bike and started riding from my home in
Heckmondwike to the office in Leeds. One day I was staggering up the
long hill from Birstall to Drighlington when I spotted a blue
plaque on what turned out to be Field Head Farm, almost overhanging the M62. Having discovered
that this was Joseph Priestley’s
birth place, I then found that he had spent his teenage years with his
Aunt at the Old Hall in Heckmondwicke, which had become my local pub, and had
discovered oxygen as a result of watching the beer brewing in a brewery in Leeds. This was the beginning of Local Heroes; so
Joseph Priestley changed my life.
And a letter published in the Daily Telegraph!
