BAE Systems has announced the closure of it's Chadderton, Manchester factory after more than 70 years of aircraft manufacturing at the site. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-manchester-14062736
Originally owned by AVRO, the site has seen the likes of the Avro Manchester, Avro Lancaster, and the Bristol Blenheim being built.
It will be a sad day when the factory closes for the final time. Thanks for everything, Chadderton.
