Ropeworks Building

Ropeworks Building

Pakington Strand Shopping Centre is home to an historic ropeworks building that operated successfully from 1874 to the 1980's. Established by Irishman Michael Donaghy, the factory consisted of a 500 metre rope walk, that was used to lay out and create long lengths of rope. When Donaghy's business went into receivership, the working factory was sold to rival ropemaker Kinnears in 1978, who continued the operation until 1999 when modern technology and cheaper imports forced its closure.
