Penwortham mill/vernon carus, Preston, October 2009

Penwortham Mills/Vernon Carus, just to the south of Preston, Lancashire, was home to Vernon-Carus since 1915. It was a major manufacturer of surgical lint, which was the first surgical dressing to be commercially manufactured in the UK. When it was founded, Lancashire was the world’s centre for weaving and fabric production.

The mills were closed in 2006 after the company relocated to brand new premises.
