#511 – Pincroft Dyers


Lancashire 1938? No, 2018. It looks like polluting black smoke emerging from the chimney, but it’s actually just steam, the vignette I’ve applied has had the effect of darkening the vapour.

This is Pincroft Dyers is one of the few remains of  Lancashire’s once dominant textile industry. I spoke to one of the shift managers who was arriving an and this little Dyeworks (actually it’s pretty big) in Chorley is thriving currently. With English Fine Cottons in Manchester seemingly doing well, maybe there’s hope for manufacturing after all? We’ll see what happens after Brexit (I will offer no opinion on that matter).
