    The Marley Tile Factory was built and started production in the 1950s t
    at Delamere near Chester.
    Three production lines, one automatic, two semiautomatic;one line were used only intermittently utilising the machine crew operating one of the other lines; capacity was operating at 12 million plain plus 9 million large tiles or 16 million large tiles. If the third line was fully operated on a single shift the capacity would be increased by 12 million plain tiles. Profiles produced were the plain, feature,Ludlow Major, Modern and Wessex tiles.
    The factory closed in 2007.Considering it has been shut 3 years, it is still in reasonably good condition.Although,it appears some demolition has taken place.The site is huge and has an old quarry and lake behind the buildings.
    Visited with Georgie and The Cat Crept In.

    Has anyone been around here lately?
    I took a wander the other night but didn't go in - seems the police are now using it for training purposes.
    On my way back to the car (walking along the main road) I heard what I can only describe as a pre-recorded dog barking and message (couldn't make out a word) but it was bloody loud.
    Im guessing either a pre-recorded message linked to a PIR, or remote CCTV.

    The police have used the site a few times for training apparently.
    The car park and remaining open areas on site have beened used for a stage of a Vintage car rally,also.
    Quite surprised if they have set up any kind of deterrent system,only way to find out for sure is if you have a return visit?
