Fletchers 15

Fletchers 15 - Robert Fletchers, Oldham
"C machine, the largest and fastest paper machine at fletchers once capable of producing the finest of paper at 300 metres a minute."

Large Beloit Walmsley rolling mill. This is a newish mill in a newish building. Apparently, it's not fully paid for either. I grew up not far from Beloit Walmsley's huge factory in Bolton, and remember seeing massive machines being moved out. Sadly, they to have shut.
