PLEASE NOTE -: The former Thomas Bolton's copper works has now been taken over by the MOD, and is used as a storage base by them. They provide 24 hour security, and so the CVR recommends no visitors should attempt to reach the surviving chimney to take photographs from. As this is located on private land, the CVR cannot accept any liability for any consequential action taken should you be found at this location.
