Corah & Sons was a former hosiery and textiles business,
founded by Nathaniel Corah in 1824
St Margaret's works opened in 1865 - 66 and
closed in the 1990s.
Today parts of the factory are still used by hosiery and textile companys,
but much of the factory is unused.
The chimney has gone and there was a fire in April 2012, it is not a listed building.
The sculpture of St Margaret which formerly stood above the main entrance,
was removed too St Margaret's chapel in 1995.

There's an indian bloke running an illegal car park, tries to charge for £3 a day to park there... Had planning round telling them to stop doing it yet they carry on. He usually leaves around 11am/midday though.

It's took a real hammering recently
Since this post the blue lift motor (in the second group of photos side by side) has been ripped out and spread across the roof... Also a HUGE server rack that was in the burnt out bit has mysteriously disappeared!
