Top: Part of the site where the Albion Dyeworks had stood, the business was owned by the Busfield family for several generations dating back to 1868, there was some rebuilding at the dyeworks in 1908.
The datestones from the factory have been incorporated into the wall .
St Oswalds Church is seen on the right, a small enclave of houses named Town Gate Close were erected on the site , also Town Gate House.
