    The Explore
    So after a few explores around Crewe and Stoke we met up with some friends from the North East and headed for this dairy factory.. another one of those places that we were a few years too late but not a bad one to fill a few hours :)

    The History
    Fole dairy occupied the site of Fole Mill, originally built in 1771 for Henry Copestake. The Dairy opened in the 1920s and was originally owned by Co-operative Wholesale Society (C.W.S.) Milk Group, and produced milk and cream. In 1995 management passed to Associated Co-operative Creameries, and finally in 2006 to Dairy Farmers of Britain (D.F.B.). At the time the Dairy closed on 31 March 2009 it employed 246 people.
