Sutton Castings - Macclesfield

Sutton castings on the corner of Roe Street and Churchill Way in Macclesfield was founded in Feb 1981.
They specialised in the manufacture of aluminium components, patterns, jigs, castings and foundry work until
closure of the business in December 2008.

Visited on two occasions , first with jbl bass & second time with Tom Sherman & Noodlethesis
(whom we left to negotiate the razor wire on his own) whilst I took some externals :D

The building is pending major re-development, by Cheshire building society utilising the empty space in front of
the main warehouse with a modern glass frontage.

The building as it is today, looking a little run down to say the least

at the back of the building sits this annexe complete with hopper and chimnney
