A very large stone weighing 50 tons was safely conveyed yesterday from Messrs. E. E. Walsh's Cox Green stone quarry, Turton (where the stone has been quarried by a large number of their workmen), to Messrs. Blair and Sumner, Mill Hill Bleachworks, Bolton. The arrangements were carried out without the slightest hitch, the haulage being performed by Messrs. Joseph Nall and Co., carting agents to the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway.

The load travelled through Bromley Cross, passing the Volunteer Inn, with Eli Walsh standing on the engine, and John James Walsh and William Walsh on the trailer (see photograph on p170 Turton 2000 publication). Its destination was the bleachworks, where it was probably used as an engine bed.
