WELCOME...

...to 'Delta 64' the web-site where you will find a photograph of EVERY LOCAL AUTHORITY FIRE STATION in the 5 brigade areas of North West of England, plus a large number of appliance photographs, some incident shots,  archive material plus a number of ancilliary vehicles.

I am a retired priest in the Church of England. [Here I am with the beautiful Corrie Star ~ Brooke Vincent (Sophie Webster)]  I was for a time a Fire Brigade Chaplain with Cornwall County Fire Brigade -  callsign 'Golf-Sierra'.     I am an ardent supporter of the Firefighters Charity, having been vice-chairman in Cornwall.

My interest in the Fire Brigade began way back in the late 1950's when for a birthday treat I was taken along to our local fire station - the then Lancashire County Station - Delta 64.  My interest was further kindled by Station Officer Bert Paine who moved to Newton-le-Willows on March 20th 1967 and served there until he retired 30th April 1974.  He continued to live there until his death in early 2007.

This site is dedicated to Bert and to all those fire-fighters based at D64 who encouraged me over the years.
