With over 120 years experience, TBA is one of the worlds leading developers and manufacturers of high performance, industrial textiles for primary industries and arduous environments

TBA Textiles Ltd has been based at the Turner and Newall factory in Rochdale since 1875

The developer which owns the site told the firm they had to leave by May 2012

Rochdale Borough Council has earmarked the TBA site for 568 houses

The Rochdale factory was world's biggest asbestos plant

Apologies for the crap pics, (I'd left my fisheye on), I couldn't be bothered with a tripod either, so instead cranked the ISO up

(This place should be called CBA Ltd)


In all honesty the place is worth a closer look, it's massive and lots to see also access (for now) is pretty straight forward via some comedy climbs etc..

One more thing, beware the place is being rinsed daily by pikeys, although we didn't physically see any today we did hear them ripping the guts out of the place!

TBA Ballistics

A local firm turning out protective clothing for the emergency services and armed forces
(This was proper interesting, plenty of stuff left over here from stab vests to Police uniform templates etc)

Pikey's were operating in this area, also I was too lazy to take many pics as I was far too busy poking through the tons of paraphernalia left behind

I'd like to have spent more time in here, but with pikey's in full force and losing light rapidly we had to bail, besides TLR has rabbits to feed, Enjoy!
