    So after a night in a Stoke Hotel, the car was thankfully still there... Me and Ben went on our way to the next site. I hadn’t actually heard of this one but instantly recognised it when I looked UP! I’d been wondering where that photo had been taken!

    The lovely but derped admin block is all that’s left of the Fisons/Sanofi-Aventi Pharmaceutical Research Site in Holmes Chapel.

    Bengers opened the site in 1937, then Fisons researched the drug Intal on site after Fisons took over in the 60s. The site was closed around 2004 when Sanofi-Aventi bought the site and built a shiny new place next door.

    The site was sold for £13,000,000 in 2012 and plans for Homes and a Shopping Park have not progressed.

    I would be very sad if the dome got destroyed. Sadly Fisters wasn't my idea but I thought it funny! Id like to have made "Fisons" too.
