    Yep that big asbestos mill that's getting plenty of attention from explorers and pikeys alike, we didn't meet any other explorers but plenty of the other kind, no problems at all.

    Done over two rather quick visits along with Host, considering the size of the place we have probably missed a few bits, a shame the print room has lost a lot of good stuff in the space of a week, still a good site though

    Turner Brothers Asbestos was one of Greater Manchester's oldest firms and was forced to leave its hometown after more than 100 years. TBA Textiles Ltd has been based at the Turner and Newall factory in Rochdale since 1875But the developer which owns the site has told the firm to leave by May 2012. The Rochdale site was the birthplace of the modern asbestos textile industry and headquarters of the T&N worldwide empire until 1948.

    The site of the old Turner Brothers asbestos textile factory at Spotland upon which plans for developing a housing estate of 650 houses is currently being considered..

    Turner Brothers Asbestos (TBA) were pioneers of asbestos material fabrication, and developed spinning and weaving processes. Production commenced in the early 1870’s, and it ended in the Spodden Valley in the mid 1990’s.
