Fletchers Paper Mill Oldham

As a business, Fletchers was established in the early 19th century as a paper bleaching and manufacturing company. Towards the late 90's they really started to struggle. In 2000 in an effort to save the business from going to the wall, they closed the sister mill with a loss of 120 jobs. Despite the move, the company continued the downward spiral! And in July 2001 suppliers and creditors applied to wind up the company. The firm then closed overnight without warning.

Walking around in here was surreal! It was as though people had downed tools on a Friday ready for Monday? The electric was still on and the phone lines were live.
