Chisworth works was built at the end of the 18th,or early 19th century as a cotton band manufacturer, and initially called Higher Mill. There has been significant and extensive alterations since then. By 1973 the site was used as a dyeing and pigment works. Apparently the company started winding up in 2006 and was dissolved/liquidised and then closed in September that year.
Due to all the dye residue I would highly recommend the use of a face mask whilst exploring the site.
