    "You've got red on you..."

    Visited with O2E & Zero on a wonderful early summer morning. Two buildings in one! This used to be a Brewery before the pigmentation works moved in and subsequently used it to house a vertical dye and pigment production line running though the buildings and making use of the existing concrete portal frame left over from the brewery.

    Not much remains here and is in an advanced state of being "fucked" but after seeing Host's most excellent report, the quirk of the colours and the brewery leftovers proved too much of a draw.

    Some info on EC Pigments:

    And the fomer brewery.

    Bell & Co Ltd, Hempshaw Brook Brewery, Hempshaw Lane, Stockport. Founded by Avery Fletcher in 1835 and was acquired by Smith & Bell in 1850. Registered in 1898. Acquired by Frederic Robinson Ltd in April 1949 with 160 tied houses.
