Little Greene Dye Works of Collyhurst Wood, Manchester, is one of England's oldest industrial sites for the making of paints and dye solutions. The Earl of Derby granted rights for the use of the site as a 'house producing colours' in the 18th century. Joshua Rowlands, the earliest identifiable proprietor of the works, led the development of traditional paints for domestic and industrial use, drawing upon his experience of making dye solutions for the cotton trade.
Situated at the confluence of the rivers Irk and Irwell, the site's popularity over the centuries stemmed from the ready source of fast flowing clean water from the Pennines. This natural resource was used for both motive force to power the paint grinding stones and as a valuable clean product ingredient. The early paints would have been based on natural resins and pigments, similar in many ways to those used by the great artists of old.
