Top: Charles Busfield and Co. Ltd. dyeworks, located between Church Lane and Union Street off Towngate.
The business was begun in the 1800s by Charles Busfield who built up an earlier dyeworks on the site.
He lived on Mount Pleasant and kept hens as a hobby.

Upper Midle: Charles Busfield and Co. Ltd, yarn dyers and bleachers. The mill had it's own artesian well to supply the copious amounts of water needed for the dyeing process which was a huge advantage and enabled the company to be independent of the local water supply

Lower Middle: Seen from Church Lane, this is the back of the dyeworks.
