Our client, Barbara Green, lived with her mother at father; Joan and Arthur Taylor, at the Wilson’s Brewery/ Watney Mann Public House; The Nottingham Castle, later The Toll Point in Denton, Manchester, between 1968 and 1973, and continued to work there part time until 1985/86.
Sadly Barbara has developed an asbestos-related cancer; mesothelioma, as a result of her exposure to asbestos dust and debris.
At the age of 16 Barbara’s parents took over the tenancy of the pub. A few years later the brewery undertook renovations, converting the four rooms downstairs into two and installing a new bar.
As a result of this renovation work in around 1971 it is believed Barbara was exposed to asbestos dust and debris.
Barbara recalls asbestos lagged pipes in the boiler room and running underneath the seating area. She used to clean underneath the tables and chairs where it was dusty.
Mrs Green’s father, died of the same illness in 1993, it is believed as a result of exposure to asbestos at the same pub. Barbara said; “to have asbestos exposure from the same location affect two generations of the same family is a shock to us all, if anyone knows anything about asbestos at The Nottingham Castle, later the Toll Point, or worked on maintenance or the renovations at Wilson’s Brewery/Watney Mann pubs I would be extremely grateful if you could contact the Asbestos Law Partnership.”
