Bengers (later Fisons Pharma) at Holmes Chapel in 1948

November 8, 2019

Bengers Ltd Pharmaceutical Works (including Benger House), Holmes Chapel in 1948. Later to become Fisons Pharmaceuticals. The A50 can be seen running diagonally past the front of Bengers house. Note the original narrow brick railway arch later replaced by today’s current wide steel span. The rest of the London Road site had still to be developed at this time.

I worked there in the late 1960s in the Organic Chemistry Research Lane before transferring to Loughborough, involved on analogues of Cromglycate, the blockbuster drug discovered by Dr Roger Altounyan and Fisons Chemists at Holmes Chapel.
