Entrance to Adamson Industrial Estate
Cross over Croft Street Bridge and you arrive at the entrance to the Adamson Industrial Estate.
Originally this was the Joseph Adamson Works dating back to 1885 when they were engineers and boiler-makers. Joseph's uncle Daniel Adamson was the founder of the Manchester Ship Canal.
By 1981 the site by the Peak Forest Canal was described as derelict and unlikely to find a future user but in fact, though the old chimney has gone, the warehouses remain and it is home to a number of small and larger businesses.
