    Thanks TK421, my pleasure :)

    Any idea when it closed? I ask because I drive through Matlock Bath to Matlock an the way to see the dragon and when i've been through in the week in working hours i'm sure i've seen activity recently-ish.
    I think they closed it because Rockwood purchased the pigments divisions of Johnson Matthey colours (now defunct) and moved all the business to Kidsgrove, Stoke on Trent.....
